WHAT TO EXPECT

Doors to the theatre open half an hour before the performance starts. Half an hour is plenty of time to collect tickets, get a programme, buy a drink and catch your breath – before we take it away again.

Seating is allocated when you purchase your tickets and there will be ushers in the auditorium to help you find your seat.

If you arrive late you may be asked to wait until a suitable break in the performance before you enter and sometimes you may not be able to enter at all. This will be clearly stated on your ticket.

If you have any concerns, please contact the Box Office on 0118 370 2620 or email us at boxoffice@readingrep.com
