Frequently Asked Questions

Is the De La Warr Pavilion open?

No, as from Wednesday 18 March 5pm we are closed to the public.

What is the De La Warr Pavilion doing about the Coronavirus situation?

In accordance with government advice, we are now closed to the public.

What happens if my event is rescheduled?

If your event is rescheduled to another date, your tickets will be valid for that event on the new date.
If you cannot attend on the new date, refunds are offered at point of purchase.

Please consider this before you ask for a refund if an event is rescheduled or cancelled

We appreciate that many people will be grateful to receive refunds but your decision not to ask for a refund will help us sustain business as usual – for the music ecosystem around us, artists, staff and local businesses.

A large part of our income comes from people spending money at the Pavilion on tickets, at the bar during gigs, in the shop and in our Café Bar.

To support us, you can choose to have your ticket money credited to your account to spend on other events at the Pavilion in the future.

We hope you don’t mind us asking you to reconsider your request for a refund.

As a Charity (no. 1065586), our business model is a mix of public funding, private fundraising and commercial income.

We are not for profit, with all income reinvested in programmes for the benefit of the public, our community. We provide free access to over 420,000 visitors per annum, and over 6000 participants engage in public programmes, such as Play Circle,  Music Matinee Club, Look Think Make and Mercury Club  to name a few.

Our live programme has been built up over the last 10 years; deemed unviable in 2005 it now offers a programme of live music and comedy which is as important to its region as any other UK venue. The programme returns a very small profit overall, but importantly supports many musicians, artists and promoters, local staff, many local businesses (bars, restaurants and B&Bs) and capacity to support regional initiatives such as 1066 Music City.

Will I get a refund if the event that I have booked for has been cancelled?

Yes, but please consider the above request before asking for a refund.

Refunds or exchange must be requested from your point of purchase and can only be claimed by the person who made the booking. This means that if you have bought tickets via a third party eg SEE Tickets/Ticketmaster then you must apply to them for a refund. Refunds will only cover the face value of the tickets. You will not receive a refund on booking fees or postage.

You will be advised on how to claim your refund when we send the cancellation notice.

Will I get a refund if I decide not to come as I'm feeling unwell or am concerned about my health?

Refunds and exchanges will not be offered if, for any reason, the performer is on site and the performance goes ahead but the ticket holder is unable to attend to the venue.

Will I get a refund if I cannot travel to DLWP?

As above, we are unable offer a refund if the performer is on site, the performance goes ahead but the ticket holder is unable to attend the venue.

How will I get up to date information about whether an event has been re-scheduled or cancelled?
