2. HOW THIS WORKS
2.1 Dreamland operates The Venues.
2.2 Your admission to and conduct at Dreamland, all Venues and at all Events is governed by these Venue Terms.
By purchasing Tickets and/or entering or attempting to enter a Venue, you will be taken to have accepted these Venue Terms and, where a Ticket has been purchased, the Ticket Terms.
2.3 Some Organisers and/or Ticket Agents may have their own terms and conditions, which will apply to you when using your Tickets to attend an Event. These will apply in addition to the Venue Terms and the Ticket Terms. If there is any inconsistency between these Venue Terms and the Ticket Terms, and the terms specified by Organisers and/or Ticket Agents, these Venue Terms and the Ticket Terms will apply in priority to the others. To the extent that there is a conflict between these Venue Terms and the Ticket Terms, the Ticket Terms will take precedence.
2.4 You acknowledge that your general access to the Dreamland site (rather than a Venue) is subject to additional terms and conditions for ‘On Park’ entry. You can find a copy of these terms and conditions at https://www.dreamland.co.uk/terms.
3. AMENDMENTS TO THESE TERMS

4. YOUR TICKET
4.1 Your Ticket may be in the form of paper, mobile/bar code, email, wristband or chip technology or such other form that becomes available over time including paperless mechanisms. Tickets cannot be cancelled or exchanged after purchase, other than in accordance with these Venue Terms and the terms of the Ticket Agent from which they are purchased.
4.2 Only persons holding a valid Ticket (and in some cases valid ID, pursuant to section 7.1 of these Venue Terms) will be admitted to Events at Dreamland. You must keep your Ticket with you at all times during an Event.
4.3 Keep your Tickets safe. Your Ticket may be invalidated if any part of it is removed, altered or defaced. Removing the Ticket stub of a physical Ticket will invalidate the Ticket. Tickets cannot be duplicated if lost or stolen and neither Dreamland nor any Organiser will be liable for any lost or stolen Tickets.
4.4 Ownership or possession of a Ticket does not confer any rights (by implication or otherwise) on you to use, alter, copy or otherwise deal with any of the symbols, trademarks, logos and/or intellectual property appearing on the Ticket or used in connection with the Event.
5. TICKET PURCHASE & RESALE
5.1 Our authorised primary Ticket Agent is See Tickets (https://www.seetickets.com/). The Organiser may also have appointed its own authorised Ticket Agent(s) for the Event.

We may also seize and/or cancel without refund any Ticket purchased using (or suspected to be using methods) methods generated by a script, macro, ticket bot or automated devices. Information regarding the purchase of any such Ticket and its holder may be passed on to the relevant authorities.
5.4 Neither we nor any Organiser will be required to accept Tickets if we know or have reasonable grounds for believing that the Tickets have been duplicated or purchased from unauthorised agents or other unauthorised sources including, without limitation, ticket touts. We are entitled to refuse entry to any person holding such a Ticket, or to eject them from the Venue and/or the Event.
5.5 The number of Tickets purchased may be subject to a cap. Ticket Agents will notify you of this before you make your booking. We reserve the right to request that Ticket Agents cancel any Tickets which we reasonably believe were bought in excess of this cap or were otherwise purchased in breach of these Venue Terms.
5.6 Tickets may not be used for promotions, competitions, sweepstakes or for other commercial purposes without the prior written consent of Dreamland and the Organiser.

(c) religious symbols of faith, where certain conditions for entry (policy available on request and/or as otherwise determined within our discretion), are not met;
(d) items which artists performing at an Event or their management have asked us to prohibit;

7.9 In order to ensure the security, safety and comfort of all visitors, we reserve the right at our reasonable discretion to refuse your admission to, or to eject you from, the relevant Venue without compensation or refund.
7.11 Should you experience any problems while in Dreamland please contact the nearest steward or security officer so that every reasonable effort can be made to resolve the issue prior to, or during the Event you are attending. Complaints are very difficult to resolve after the Event.
7.12 In the event that you believe you have a legitimate complaint that may give rise to a claim against the Organiser, you are required to notify the Organiser in writing of such complaint within 7 days of attending the Event.
8.1 There is no re-admission once you have left a Venue except in limited circumstances and at our sole discretion. This does not include leaving the immediate Venue to purchase refreshments or use the washroom facilities within the Venue.

Refunds and compensation will not be offered if your view is restricted in this way or otherwise disturbed by members of the audience entering/exiting their seat.
8.3 Floor seating is not tiered, and a refund or compensation will not be offered if your view is restricted as a result of the floor not being tiered.
8.4 All feedback regarding artist performance, running order, times and sight lines must be directed to the Organiser and not the Venue.

8.6 For some specific Events, and at the request of the artist, latecomers may not be admitted into the Venue until a suitable break in the performance (if any). We will not refund Tickets if you miss all or part of an Event due to your late arrival.
8.7 The use of cameras, video and/or sound recording equipment (including via mobile phones) other than for personal use (i.e. for commercial use) is prohibited and such items may not be used within individual Venues except with our express written consent.
8.8 You are required to observe and comply with all rules and regulations shown on notices at Dreamland and individual Venues and to comply with all instructions given to you by Venue stewards and staff at the Event.
8.9 All advertised times are approximate and subject to change. It is your responsibility to make appropriate arrangements to ensure that you arrive at the Venue in sufficient time in case the Event starts early and to ensure that you are able to stay until the close of the Event, should you wish to if it overruns. If an Event does not run to the precise times advertised, refunds will not be payable on Tickets and we will not be responsible for the cost of alternative travel arrangements or for any other loss you suffer (including loss of enjoyment).
8.11 Your purchasing of a Ticket will allow you access to the Venue. However, access to each designated area within a Venue is subject to capacity constraints and there is no guarantee you will be able to access a specific area within a Venue. The Organiser therefore accepts no liability and will not offer and Ticket refunds if you are unable to access an area within a Venue due to that area being at maximum capacity. You may be required to queue to enter the Venue or an area within a Venue so please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
8.12 You must leave the Dreamland quietly in consideration for our neighbours. Any failure to do so may result in you being refused entry to, or permission to purchase Tickets to, future Events.

9.2 Strobes and lasers may be used as part the performance. Please contact Venue Management if you have any concerns
9.3 No smoking is permitted in any part of the undercover venues. Smoking is permitted in delineated sections only. Stewards will be able to direct you to the correct area.

9.4 WARNING – prolonged exposure to loud noise may cause damage to your hearing. Flashing lights may be used during a performance.
9.5 If you have any specific access requirements, please contact us before purchasing Tickets, to ensure that we can accommodate your requirements. Accessible seating may not be available unless it is arranged in advance.
10. FOOD AND BEVERAGE

10.2 Bottle tops may be removed from all bottles purchased from concourse outlets or bars inside the Venues. This is to reduce the risk of them becoming rolling trip hazards or being used as missiles. Occasionally, drinks will be decanted into plastic cups.
10.3 When purchasing alcohol, if you appear to be under the age of 25, you may be asked for proof of age. We reserve the right to refuse to serve you alcohol if you do not have valid photographic ID.

11.3 You must not bring into Dreamland or display or distribute (whether for free or with a charge) at an Event or Venue any sponsorship, promotional or marketing materials nor any leaflets, signage or other materials containing religious or political messaging
12. CANCELLATION, POSTPONEMENT AND ALTERATIONS
12.1 Dreamland or an Organiser may make alterations to Events which are not material in nature. No refunds will be available in respect of non-material alterations.
A “material” change is a change to an Event which in the reasonable opinion of Dreamland or the Organiser, makes the Event substantially different to the Event which purchasers of the Ticket would reasonably expect to attend. Changes to performance times, supporting acts and the use of understudies in a theatre performance will not be a material change.
A material change is judged by reference to the nature and billing of each Event. Events which are festivals or themed events are judged by reference to the overall theme rather than the individual act scheduled to appear. This includes Events which have multiple artists and/or where the Event name does not include reference to any specific act. In these cases, no scheduled acts may be considered as headline acts, regardless of their relative fame or prominence in the billing.
12.2 In the event of a cancellation of, postponement of or material change to an Event you may be entitled to a refund in accordance with the terms and conditions or refund policy of the authorised Ticket Agent from whom you purchased your Ticket(s) and you must contact the Ticket Agent to request all refunds.
12.3 No refunds will be issued directly to you by Dreamland or the Organiser of any Event. Refunds for cash purchases made at any Venue Box Office will be available by cheque only BACS transfer. Ticket Agents may not make a refund if you fail to follow the instructions provided within the timeframes notified in their terms and conditions.
12.4 It is your responsibility to check the website for Dreamland /the Event or Ticket Agent for news of any cancellation, postponement or alteration of the Event. Information on such matters will be made available on behalf of the Organiser as soon as reasonably practicable on the Dreamland website at www.dreamland.co.uk and/or physically at Dreamland and/or at the relevant Venue. Customers are advised that the website cannot always be updated immediately and that circumstances giving rise to cancellation or alterations may arise immediately prior to an Event.
