Buying Advance Tickets

We understand that buying on the door offers the flexibility for those who don’t know what they’re doing later in the year, those who can’t afford tickets at time of announcement, or for those who simply fancy an impromptu night out. We always notice a spike in sales on the day or the days leading up to the event, which is great to see, but we just want to stress the advantage of advance ticket sales for yourselves, independent venues/promoters and the wider music scene.

  • Buying in advance saves you money on tickets with OTD tickets costing significantly more than the advanced price; if you're buying two or more tickets that could be a saving of between £5 and £10 a gig.

  • Small organisations like us rely on ticket sales to keep the venues running and invest in future programming.

  • We look at the number of advance ticket sales to staff our nights accordingly. A jump in attendance based on last minute or OTD sales can lead to bigger queues at the bar.

  • It guarantees to get you into the show. We hate breaking the bad news to people who call/email us for tickets once the event has sold out.

  • Barring an "Act of God", shows that have healthy sales of advance tickets are more likely to go ahead. Some artists might cancel shows if advance sales are low as they don’t want to be out of pocket.

We want to reward the loyalty of our regular gig goers who repeatedly purchase advance tickets. So for every advanced ticket purchased we will enter you into a prize draw to win two tickets for future Tees Music Alliance shows at The Georgian Theatre & The Green Room. 

  • The draw will be made once the show you have purchased tickets for has taken place. 

  • Every ticket purchased will be entered into the prize draw e.g. if you’ve purchased for a party of four then you’ll have four chances to win. 

  • Each show is a different draw e.g. if you buy two tickets for different shows then you’re entered into two prize draws.

  • This is for online ticket purchases through the Georgian Theatre website only.
