We aim to return calls and e-mails within 24 hours Monday-Friday (closed bank holidays).

The venue opens at 7pm for our evening events.


We do not print physical tickets, instead you will receive a e-ticket by email – please show this to the box office on your phone or device when you arrive for the show.

If you’re unable to do this please make a note of the Order ID code in your confirmation email and quote this at the box office. You may also be asked for photo identification.

We like to think green here at NAC so please show us e-tickets on your phone rather than printing your e-mail.
