*** CORONAVIRUS STATEMENT ***
In response to the Prime Minister’s statement yesterday advising that people should avoid non-essential contact with others; regrettably all public events in the Centre's Auditorium are currently suspended/cancelled.
The theatre will remain closed until further notice and will re-open as soon as possible, following government recommendations. Where possible, we will be trying our hardest to look at rescheduling dates for the future.
We appreciate this will be extremely disappointing news, but hope customers will understand the unprecedented nature of the current circumstances. Ultimately the health and wellbeing of all of our volunteers and customers is the most important consideration at this time.
We will be looking to offer full refunds for all ticket sales and we will be in contact with all of our customers in due course, but please be patient as these may take time.
Thank you all so much for your patience, understanding and support during this unsettling period, we really do appreciate it.
We will be sending out regular updates as soon as we have them.
Keep safe, our love to you all.
Online Box Office - Patronbase
We are pleased to confirm that the Festival Drayton Centre is now offering customers the option to book their tickets with a new box office system for most cinema, live event or satellite screenings.
This is a significant step forward for the Centre and brings us in line with other venues. We do however appreciate that many of you will still wish to book by phone or speak to someone in person and so our Box Office team will continue to offer the same excellent service they have always provided.
The new online system will allow you to book your tickets at any time of the day, and to access Friends prices if applicable. In addition those of you who are Friends will be able to renew your subscription online, and gift vouchers will also be available to buy and redeem against your ticket purchases.
When booking tickets either online or through the box office, you will be asked whether or not you would like to make a donation to the Centre. Being entirely self-funded we are hoping this will provide us with additional income but it is entirely optional.
The new programme will incur significant additional costs for the Centre and so the decision has been taken to make a £2 charge per online booking (not per ticket) and in future to charge if customers would like their tickets posting to them.
Instantly by debit/credit card over the phone on 01630 654444
At our Box Office, Frogmore Road, Market Drayton, TF9 3AX. Please see below for location, map and box office opening times.
Gift vouchers can be bought from the Box Office team or online. The vouchers are available to any value and can be redeemed, online, over the phone or in person quoting the Voucher ID, against a Festival Drayton Centre live event, film and satellite screening. Please note vouchers are not accepted for Amdrams or private hire events. A credit balance will be held for any outstanding amount.

We regret we are unable to refund tickets unless the event is cancelled.

Infra Red headsets and neck loops are available to amplify sound for the hard of hearing. Please request their use at the time of booking.
