Tickets sold by an unofficial agent/individual above face value are in breach of our terms and conditions and therefore the tickets may be cancelled and you will not gain entry into the grounds.

Will I get a refund if it rains?

Please see the 2017 Raincheck Policy for further information on refunds.

Can tickets be transferred or refunded?

Tickets are not refundable, except under the raincheck scheme, and may not be exchanged or returned unless the event is cancelled, moved to another date, moved to another venue or as otherwise set out in the terms and conditions of purchase.
