Booking information

Unless stated otherwise, all tickets can be booked through the Gala Theatre box office. Tickets are divided into two price bands: full price and concessions.

Many festival events sell out very quickly so please book in advance to avoid disappointment.

During the festival any remaining tickets can be purchased on the door at events.

Please note: If you are collecting tickets before the day of your event, they will be at the Gala Theatre box office. If you are collecting on the day, they will be on the door of your event venue.

Concessions information

Concessions price tickets are available to senior citizens, the registered unemployed, registered disabled, under 16s and students. Proof of status must be shown when booking or collecting your tickets.

If you are registered disabled, please book by phone on 03000 266 600 or in person at Gala Theatre box office, so we can make note of your access requirements. If you require assistance, we can provide a companion’s ticket free of charge.

Refunds and exchanges

The Durham Book Festival does not offer refunds. We can exchange tickets for another performance up to 24 hours before a show. There is a charge of £1 per ticket for this service, and original tickets must be returned to the box office at the Gala.

Latecomers policy

Latecomers will be admitted at the organisation’s discretion. It is the ticket-buyer’s responsibility to arrive on time for events and we do not offer refunds to those who miss an event.
