At the Grand Theatre, £1 from every ticket sold goes towards the Restoration Fund for the continued improvement of the Grand Theatre. At City Varieties, 60p from each ticket goes towards the preservation of this Grade II* listed building.
Tickets are required for each child attending a performance. Children under 3 will not be admitted unless the performance is specifically advertised as being for under 3s. In order to purchase a child’s ticket, the person using it should be under 16.
We do not advise that children under 16 attend the theatre without a responsible adult and venue staff accept no responsibility for any unaccompanied children under 18.

Students should be in possession of a valid student ID or NUS card.
We reserve the right to check proof of eligibility at any point and entry will be refused if you are found to have purchased a concession you are not entitled to.
Schools concessions are to enable educational establishments to bring groups of pupils or students to see performances at a reduced rate. They are not transferable to adults and cannot be used by groups of staff (Group rate seats are available for groups of 10 or more). The additional ticket for school groups is for an accompanying adult who should be responsible for the behaviour of the children in the party.
You may have your tickets posted to you for a £1 charge. If within 5 days of the performance, your tickets will be held care of the Box Office. These tickets can be collected on presentation of the Debit/Credit Card used to make your booking and your booking confirmation if you have booked online.
If booking online, you may also choose to print at home. There is no charge for this service but you must bring your printed ticket with you to gain entrance.
Front Row of Stalls
Due to the nature of live theatre the front row of the stalls may be subject to change even after tickets go on sale. We regret we are unable to inform patrons who have purchased tickets of any such change.
Leeds Grand Theatre and Opera House Ltd cannot guarantee the appearance of any named artist and refunds will not be given on this basis.
Refunds will not be offered unless a performance is cancelled or abandoned when less than half the performance has taken place. If a performance is cancelled we will make every effort to accommodate you at another time or offer a refund.
Returning your tickets
If you are unable to use your tickets we offer an exchange or credit service. Tickets can be exchanged for another performance of the same production or for a credit voucher valid for six months. To take advantage of this service your original tickets must be returned and received by us at least a week before the performance (14 days for group bookings of 20 or more). Any decisions after a week before the performance will be at the discretion of the management and the original tickets must be received before any credit will be issued.
Tickets purchased as part of a subscription or multi-buy package where discounts have been generated cannot be exchanged for credit vouchers or performances outside the original qualifying package.
Calls to box office cost 7p per minute plus your phone company's access charge.
We reserve the right to change the price of any ticket without prior notice to customers. Tickets will be sold at the current Box Office rate at the time of booking.
