Nuffield Southampton Theatres, University Road, Southampton SO17 1TR

Nuffield Southampton Theatres, Studio 144, Above Bar Street, Southampton, SO14 7DU


What does 'Starting At' mean in your prices?

You may have noticed that in our brochure we say prices 'starting at'. Our ticket prices are subject to change as the theatre fills. By booking early you can be sure to secure the best seats at the best price.


Why are only some of the seats on sale?

To ensure that everyone is getting the best experience of a show, we release additional seats for a performance as more tickets are sold. Audiences and Actors have the best experience when the theatre is filled from the front.

At some shows, usually because of set design, some seats may not be available at all. If you have specific access requirements, please talk to the Box Office team who will assist you in picking the best seats for you.

We always start selling shows with all price points available. It's best to book early for the best seats at the best prices.


Why are the cheap seats at the front?

We like to make sure our audiences are sitting in the best places for a performance and we believe that you'll have the best experience when seats nearest to the stage are full, so that's why the best value is closest to the stage. Book these fast though as they sell out fast!

For most performances, Visiting Companies and NST Productions, our front row is always just £10!


Can I move my seats if the seats I want become available?

We can certainly move your seats for you if they are within the same show. If your new seats aren't at the same price, there may be an additional balance to pay.

If you want to swap your seats for another performance, there will be a £5 transaction fee plus any additional balance.


Where is the best view?

All of our seats have a great view. Some seats have restrictions on them, for view or leg room. Some seats have extra benefits of booking like additional leg room or fantastic aisle seats. 

We highlight these on our seating plans by the  symbol


What happens if I'm late?

Don't worry if you're late, our friendly ushers and Duty Managers will ensure you get to your seats as soon as possible. Sometimes this might not be until the interval.

Some performances will not admit latecomers depending on how the show has been directed. Please try to let us know if you think you will be late.


Do I have to dress up?

Well, clothes are preferable! We don't expect you to dress formally for your visit to the theatre so just come in whatever you feel is comfortable.


Can my child sit on my lap?

Due to our building licensing, every person over the age of 18 months must have a seated ticket.

Infants under 18 months can sit on laps.

Unfortunately because of the way our seats fold, we can't provide booster seats for children.


Can I book a table in your Bar and Cafe?

Yes, you can book a pre-show meal in our cafe at selected shows, at least 48 hours in advance.

If you don't want to pre-book your meal, you can choose from our delicious Bar menu on the night. Just walk in and grab a seat.
