Ticketing Terms and Conditions
We set out below the terms and conditions (“Terms”) that shall apply to your purchase of tickets (“Tickets”) which are sold by or on behalf of GCE (“we”, “us” or “GCE”) for a particular event (“Event”). When purchasing tickets on www.GCElive.com, you are limited to a specified number of tickets for each event. This amount is included on the purchase pages and is verified with every transaction. This policy is in effect to discourage unfair ticket buying practices.
Please note that by proceeding to purchase Tickets, you agree to be bound by these Terms. Also, please note that the purchase of Tickets is also subject to the terms and conditions of the relevant venue where the Event is due to take place (“Venue”) and we therefore encourage you to check with the Venue website and/or Venue box office for these terms and conditions.
The Terms are as follows:
- You must produce a valid Ticket to gain entry to the Venue and you must produce that Ticket for inspection upon request at anytime. Failure to produce such Ticket when requested may result in you being removed from the Venue.
- Tickets are not transferable. Any unlawful reselling (or attempting to do so) is prohibited and may result in the cancellation of the Ticket without any refund or compensation and/or the ticket holder being refused entry or removed from the Venue.
- Tickets may not be used for any advertising, competitions, contests, sweepstakes, promotions, or used, sold or given away in conjunction with other products or services (such as part of a travel or hospitality package) without the express written permission of GCE in advance. Failure to comply with the foregoing may result in the cancellation of the Ticket without any refund or compensation and/or the ticket holder being refused entry or removed from the Venue.
- We reserve the right to restrict the sale of Tickets to a maximum number per person, per credit card and/or per household and to cancel any Tickets purchased in excess of this number.
- It is your responsibility to check your Tickets and to ascertain the date and the time of the Event and any rearranged event.
- We are not responsible or liable for any Tickets that are lost or stolen. Removing the Ticket stub will invalidate the Ticket.
- Each Ticket holder has a right to a seat of a value corresponding to that stated on the Ticket holder’s Ticket and we and the Venue reserve the right to provide alternative seats to those specified on the Ticket.
- GCE has the right to replace any items bundled together with Tickets, e.g. food and beverage (“Hospitality Packages”) with an alternative ‘like for like’ item and shall not be obligated to refund or exchange your Hospitality Package.
- Your purchase of Tickets is subject to our right to alter or vary the programme due to events or circumstances beyond our reasonable control and in such circumstances we shall not be obligated to refund Ticket monies or exchange your Tickets. Once purchased, Tickets and/or Hospitality Packages cannot be exchanged, refunded or returned unless the event is cancelled (see details below) or, in the case of concerts (but not festivals) subject to a material change after an order is placed (a “material change” shall mean a change of headline act).
- If an Event is cancelled, we will use our reasonable endeavours to notify you as soon as reasonably possible (including notifying you of the details of any re-scheduled Event). If the Event is to be re-scheduled, you will be offered a Ticket (or a Hospitality Package where applicable) for the rescheduled performance of the Event (subject to availability). If you are not able to attend the rescheduled Event or the Event is not rescheduled, we shall give you a refund of the face value of the Ticket (or a Hospitality Package where applicable). If the relevant Event is only partially cancelled (e.g. if it is a multi-day Event and only one day is cancelled), we shall give you a partial refund corresponding to the proportion of the Event cancelled. If you wish to claim such a refund, please apply in writing to your point of purchase; enclosing your unused Ticket(s) within 28 days of the date of the cancelled Event (though please note that this is without prejudice to your statutory rights). Tickets and/or Hospitality Packages cannot be exchanged or refunded after purchase other than in accordance with this clause. If it becomes impossible or impractical for us to dispatch your tickets to you in accordance with the details for your initial order, we must reserve the right to change the method of dispatching your tickets, to ensure that you receive them safely. If we do elect to change the method of dispatch, we shall inform you in advance.
- If an error is made in the price of Tickets ordered by you, you will be notified by us as soon as possible and we will give you the option to either (a) reconfirm your Ticket order at the correct price; or (b) cancel your Ticket order and receive a full refund from us.
- Neither we nor any other party shall have any liability to you beyond the face value of the Ticket and the relevant booking fee.
