The fulfilment fee is charged per order, not related to the number of tickets purchased. Fulfilment fees are not applicable to orders of only additional ‘add-ons’, such as theatre sessions added to your booking at a later date.

The Fulfilment Fee contributes to the cost of delivering the tickets, whether it is through the post, electronically or collecting at the venue.
