THE VENUE IS PRIVATE PROPERTY. All persons entering the Venue must, where applicable, pay for admission or hold a valid ticket which has been obtained from Thornhurst, the Venue, the Venue’s website or a third party authorised by Thornhurst to sell Tickets. The sale of Tickets by anyone other than Thornhurst is strictly prohibited. Only persons authorised by Thornhurst are permitted to sell or offer for sale any items to guests within the Venue grounds. All tickets are non-transferable, not for resale and will become automatically void on any transfer for value.
A binding contract between Us (Thornhurst Leisure Limited) and the purchaser comes into existence when the final page of the booking confirmation procedure gives you a booking reference. This contract and all matters arising out of it are governed by English law.
Tickets purchased are only valid for the Venue, Event or part thereof, on the specific date, as shown on the ticket. Tickets may not be valid for special events or concerts which may attract a separate admission fee. Tickets will only be exchanged or refunded if Thornhurst, in its absolute discretion, chooses to do so. For the avoidance of any doubt, pre-booked Tickets are non-refundable in the event that admission is refused or relinquished for any reason referred to in these Entry Conditions. Non-dated Tickets booked in advance do not guarantee admission to the Venue, especially during busy times or on specific days when there are special events.
Tickets booked online will be delivered in accordance with Thornhurst’s delivery procedure. If Tickets are bought on behalf of other guests, the buyer accepts these Entry Conditions on behalf of every guest and shall ensure these Entry Conditions are complied with by each person in the group. If re-entry into the Venue, Event or part thereof is required, an appropriate hand-stamp or Ticket must be obtained, before exiting the Venue which must be shown at the time of re-entry to regain access. Tickets must be retained at all times and submitted for inspection if required by Thornhurst.

Thornhurst reserves the right, in its absolute discretion to change the age restrictions referred to in this condition, if any particular circumstances so require in the interests of safety and security.
