How To Book

You can book tickets for events at the SJT through our website, by calling 01723 370541 or popping in to the Box Office. The Box Office counter is the first thing you'll see when you come through the doors.

Box Office opening hours:

Monday - Saturday: 10am-7.15pm* 

On occasion we are open on a Sunday, the Box Office opens two hours before the show starts and closes 15 minutes after the show starts.

*Or 15 minutes after the last performance has started

Box office phone lines:

Monday - Saturday: 10am-6pm

Ticket prices

We operate a dynamic pricing policy, which means our prices can fluctuate according to demand. This also means:

  • The best way to get cheap tickets is to book early.

  • Prices are not fixed, prices may increase with demand.

  • Last minute tickets may be more expensive.

We ensure that 10% of the tickets for each performance are £10. In addition, anyone under the age of 30 can purchase £10 tickets anywhere in the auditorium for SJT productions and most of the work which tours to us. We have capped our Preview prices at £16 meaning all seats are £10 or £16.

For more information, please speak to our Box Office.

If you need seats for mobility or access reasons that aren’t currently on sale, please contact us. For more information, please see our Accessibility page.

Film tickets: £8 (Concessions £7, Circle members, NHS Staff & Under 30s £6)

Event cinema: £12-£18

What are your Ts & Cs?

Re-sales & exchanges: We must have the ticket at the Box Office in order to perform a re-sale or exchange. We regret we cannot refund money but four or more days prior to the performance we will exchange it for an alternative performance, within three days of the performance we will attempt to re-sell the ticket on your behalf. Both services are subject to a charge of £1.50 per ticket. Latecomers: Anyone arriving once the performance has begun will not be admitted until a suitable break which, on occasion, may be the interval. Content: Where possible we do indicate if strong language and/or adult content is used. Customers are advised to contact the Box Office with any concerns before booking tickets. Please note: the re-sale of tickets is prohibited.
