What happens if a concert is cancelled?
Occasionally events are cancelled due to unexpected circumstances. In these cases a full refund will be issued. Other times, when there is an alternative performance, exchange of tickets will be offered, and in some cases other rules apply. In the event of a cancellation the Box Office will make every effort to contact you with the details you provided when booking. We reserve the right to alter the programme or artists for any given performance.
Families & children
Children aged under seven will not be admitted to Cadogan Hall except for family events. Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult. Specific event age restrictions or recommendations beyond this can be found on each individual event page. All upcoming events can be found on our events listings. Due to the sound levels of some events with amplified music and the long-term impact on hearing that this could have, it is strongly recommended that parents and carers take this into account before purchasing tickets for children.
We reserve the right to remove children from the auditorium if they are not well-behaved.
At family events, children over the age of two years must each have their own ticket. Children and babies under the age of two years do not require a seat.
Security and bag checks
Please allow adequate time when travelling to the venue – bag security searches may be in operation.
Please note you will only be allowed access to Cadogan Hall on production of a valid ticket. If you have booked for a party of attendees and arrive before them, please leave their tickets for collection at the Box Office when you arrive.
