Frequently Asked Questions

Can I buy tickets on the door?
This is only possible if we have not sold out for a given performance. Please note that often the evening performances, especially Friday and Saturday, do sell out. Tickets are usually available on the door for the Saturday matinee but it is always wise to check beforehand with the Box Office.
Can I collect and pay for reserved tickets on the door?
We discourage this because, in the past, people have failed to turn up and we have lost sales. Please note that we reserve the right to offer for re-sale any tickets which have been reserved but not paid for, or which have not been collected within 15 minutes of the performance starting.
Are seats numbered?

No, seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Come along early to get the best seats! On fine evenings you can even ‘bagsy’ a seat with your coat and then sit outside on the grass.

Can I park at the venue?

There is off-road car parking available at the farm. If this area becomes full please park thoughtfully and tidily in Swaffham Bulbeck village streets.

Is the barn heated?
No, although the floor is carpeted. If the weather is cold you are advised to bring a blanket. Experienced supporters often bring a cushion too!
Are there disabled facilities?
Yes, the barn is readily accessible for wheelchairs and a disabled toilet is provided. Wheelchair users will be positioned comfortably in the auditorium by stewards who will be on hand to help. It would be helpful if disabled needs could be explained at the ticket-ordering stage so that we are aware of your needs.
Are refreshments available?
Yes, there is a cash bar.
Are the performances suitable for children?

Well-behaved children are very welcome to come to the shows, and should enjoy the spectacle and humour. We like to encourage enthusiasm for G&S from a young age!

However, very young children may get bored and restless and this can disturb other members of audience. We request that parents with small children sit at the back of the auditorium or at the end of a row, so that they can leave easily if necessary and show consideration for other theatre-goers.

We do not charge an entrance fee for small children who will sit on their parent’s lap throughout, but please note that there is no concessional ticket price for children who sit on chairs. The matinée is generally the most suitable performance for children. We hope that they enjoy the show and continue to attend for many years to come!

May I take photographs?

Flash photography must not be used, as this can distract the performers on stage.

We also do not encourage other photography, especially if the camera device makes a noise, as this is disturbing for other audience members nearby. If you wish to have photos of particular scenes please contact us, as we will have a large collection of photographs taken by our official photographer, John Thompson.
