- issue a credit to your account (expires after 24 months)
- issue a full refund
- donate the value of your tickets to Taunton Brewhouse
Refunds will only be paid to the person who purchased the tickets and, where possible, the original method of payment.
As self-isolation requirements have been discontinued, we no longer offer refunds on the grounds of illness, or testing positive for COVID-19. Our advice would be for anybody with COVID-19 to follow the latest government guidance, which encourages staying at home (and specifically not attending events).
Personal arrangements including travel, accommodation or hospitality relating to the event are made at your own risk and will not be refunded.
Tickets bought from third-party agents must be refunded at the original point of purchase.
We will attempt to notify you of a cancellation using the details you provided at time of booking, but if you have not provided us with contact details, we cannot guarantee that you will be notified.
If you can no longer attend an event, please notify the Box Office. If you are returning a ticket for a sold-out event, we will endeavour to sell your ticket to someone on our waiting list and process a full refund. However, there is no guarantee your ticket will be sold, and we cannot sell any returns until all available seats have been sold.
Pay it Forward
If you are feeling generous, we hope that you will consider our Pay It Forward scheme.
