The Weather at The Summer Play

The auditorium and stage are completely uncovered. We will make every effort to complete the performance but reserve the right to stop and start the action as necessary. Performances are never cancelled or abandoned before the advertised starting time and at that time only in the event of persistent very bad weather. If cancellation or abandonment of the play early in the performance, due to weather, is unavoidable, a “rain-check” may be given at the sole discretion of The Blewbury Players Trustees. These must be retained and presented at the Box Office if ticket holders wish to exchange these for equivalent seats at any other performance at any time in the future, but subject to availability.

Refunds are not given for cancellation or abandonment as a result of the weather.

The Weather at The Garden Opera

The auditorium and stage are completely uncovered. We will make every effort to complete the performance and reserve the right to stop and start the action as necessary. Performances are never cancelled or abandoned before the advertised starting time and at that time only in the event of persistent very bad weather. Regrettably rain-checks cannot be given for “The Garden Opera” for cancellation or abandonment as a result of the weather, nor can refunds be made.

Refunds and Exchanges

Tickets may not be exchanged or refunded except in the case of a cancelled performance (excluding weather related cancellation– see above). In the case of non-weather related cancellation only the face value of your ticket is refundable. In any event, personal arrangements including travel etc relating to the event, are at your own risk and not refundable by us.

We can accept tickets for resale but we will only attempt to resell them once a show is sold out and cannot guarantee that they will be resold.
