Our outdoor performances are very special, but there are extra considerations audiences need to make to fully enjoy the experience.

Our outdoor performances are very special, but there are extra considerations audiences need to make to fully enjoy the experience.

Read the following FAQs to make sure you plan ahead!

What time do gates open?
Gates open 1 hour before performance begins.

Can I buy tickets at the gate?
Unless the performance is sold out, tickets will be on sale at the gate, however we do advise you to book ahead.  Print at home or show on your phone where you can.

Can I bring a picnic?
Picnics are very welcome at most venues.
However, we ask that you don’t bring a table, if you do, you will be seated at the back so as not to hinder the view for other patrons.  Most tables take up the space for at least 4 other audience members so we ask for consideration.

Do I need to bring chairs or rugs?
Yes, as no seating is provided (exceptions are Brighton Open Air Theatre and the Scoop where you may wish to take blankets or cushions and our indoor venues).
Please bring chairs ( however please no HIGH BACKED chairs as this spoils the perfromance for those behind you)  – rugs get front row.
Seating/space is unreserved.

What happens if it rains?

This is an outdoor event and performances go ahead in rain or shine so do come prepared. However, we may have to abandon the performance for health and safety reasons during thunder and lightning or torrential rain. See Changeling’s cancellation policy below.

What is the cancellation policy?
The decision to cancel a performance due to inclement weather will not usually be taken until 30 minutes before curtain up, therefore, patrons should attend the venue.

Disabled Access
Being and open-air theatre company performing in many different venues the access to each venue differs.  We would ask you check with each venue before you book.

If a performance is cancelled for any reason before the show begins, refunds will be offered from the point of sale or tickets will be exchanged for forthcoming performances at certain venues.

If a performance is abandoned once it has begun, refunds will not be offered but Changeling may offer exchange tickets at certain venues.
