FAQs

Booking

Is there a dress code?

We don’t expect everyone to be as glammed up as the Funny Girls – but we do ask you to leave the sportswear at home. Jeans are acceptable – ripped or not – but not tracksuits, baseball caps, sports shirts or shorts please. Trainers are OK as long as they are smart.

Can we come in fancy dress?

Yes, please do!

Are there any age restrictions for Funny Girls?

Yes, strictly over 18's only. We operate the Challenge 25 scheme, so anyone who’s lucky enough to look under the age of 25 will be asked for photo ID and, if they cannot produce ID, they will not be admitted. No refunds will be given.

Can we book seats?

Yes, you can book your seats for both the show and the restaurant here.
For shows on Fridays and Saturdays, our box office team will allocate your seats; our boxes are offered in different sizes and seat between 2 and 8 people. Due to ticket demand, you may be sharing with other guests.

Do we have to pay upon booking?

Yes, full payment (through debit or credit card via Secure Trading) is required at the time of booking.

Does the seating price include food?

No - but you can book dinner pre-show in the restaurant, or order snacks from the bar on the night. Dinner reservations can be made up until 24 hours prior (subject to availability). We do require menu choices a minimum of 24 hours in advance to confirm meal selections.

I have booked tickets and now can’t come on that night. Can I change to a different night?

No. All of our tickets are non-transferrable.

Does the seating price include admission?

Yes, there is no separate admission charge on any tickets.

Do I have to book or can I pay on the night?

We highly recommend that you book your seats as they do sell quickly. It’s also best to book your standing tickets; you can pay on the night but you may have to queue.

I keep getting a recorded message when I ring, how can I talk to someone?

We’re in the Box Office Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 5.30pm and Saturday between 10.30am and 3.00pm. Outside these hours a voicemail service is available. Just leave us a message and someone will call you back as soon as they are free. Our phone lines are very busy, so we do thank you for your patience.

I have booked tickets online but I can't print them. What do I do?

Make a note of the booking reference and take it along with you; our team will have a record. Alternatively, your tickets can be downloaded to your phone and shown to our team when you arrive.

I have booked tickets do I still need to queue?

There may be a small queue of ticket holders but we’ll get you into the venue as quickly as possible.

If I book a meal in the restaurant does that guarantee me a seat for the show?

No. You have to book your seat for the show as well as your restaurant meal.
