Refunds & exhanges
All events have a limited capacity so advance booking is recommended, and we regret that The Ark is unable to provide refunds or exchanges under any circumstances.
Please be advised that as a courtesy to performers and other audience members and for healthe and saftey reasons, latecomers will not be admitted. We advise all visitors to arrive at the venue 15 minutes in advance of our events.
Groups attending events at The Ark can claim one free ticket with every 10 purchased, and (depending on the size of the group) can reserve tickets without having to make full payment at the time of the reservation.
To discuss your group's requirements, please contact The Ark's box office team on 01 670 7788.
The Ark continuously works to to ensure that our programmes are suitable for particular age groups. Most of our events are age-specific, because children’s interests and skills develop with age, and because children generally benefit more from participating in cultural activity with other children of their own age. We ask all visitors to respect the designated age range when booking. Events are not suitable for any children under the recommended age group.
The Ark welcomes all children to its programmes. Our productions, workshops and exhibitions are open to children with individual requirements and the physical spaces within The Ark are fully wheelchair accessible. Please note that the number of wheelchair spaces available for theatre events varies depending on the scale of the performance. Please contact the box office manager directly. If you or your group have any individual requirements, please let us know when booking your tickets so that we are able to maximise the enjoyment of your visit.
