Theatre policies

Note that the following policies correspond to Bedford Theatre box office and not Bedford Central Box Office who sell the majority of our tickets.


The school box office takes payments of cash on the door (during performances).


Please make all cheques payable to The Harpur Trust. These should be posted to: Bedford Theatre, Bedford School, De Parys Avenue, Bedford, MK40 2TU. To avoid disappointment we advise you make a telephone reservation before sending your cheque.

Credit / Debit Cards

Regrettably we are unable to accept Credit and Debit card payments at the theatre box office. However, tickets sold through the Central Box Office do.

Posting Tickets

We (Bedford Theatre) are unable to post tickets out to you. They will be held at the venue for you to pick up before the performance. Tickets ordered through Bedford Central Box Office can, however be sent out to you (more info on their website).


We are happy to reserve tickets for you. These will be held for five working days, or until 5 minutes before the performance. Unpaid reservations may be cancelled without prior notice after this time.

Returns / Exchanges / Refunds

Tickets once purchased are non refundable or exchangable . Only in the event of a show being cancelled will we refund your ticket.


Concessionary tickets are available to students (NUS or similar ID required), under 18s, unemployed, disabled, senior citizens and for some selected shows, employees of Bedford School.

Family Tickets

Some of our shows have a family ticket category. A family ticket is 4 tickets with a maximum of two adults.

Late Arrivals

If you arrive late to a performance you may not be able to enter the auditorium until the interval or a convenient break in the performance.
