Here’s a guide to getting your tickets for Hamilton which is at our Donald Gordon Theatre in the greatest city in the world 26 November 2024 – 25 January 2025.
Tickets will go on sale to the public at 10am on 8 September. If you’d like to take advantage of priority booking and be able to choose your seat, take a look at our membership options. As well as being the first to book, members also get 20% discount at our cafés and bars, exclusive ticket offers and regular email updates. Partner Awen, Partner and Ffrind+ members can also enjoy our newly refurbished members’ lounge Copr.
- To save time, make sure you have registered for an online account with us, and remember to log in before purchasing tickets to be in the room where it happens.
- A waiting room will be in place 45 minutes before the show goes on sale. When the queuing system activates, all customers in the waiting room will be assigned a random place in the queue. After queuing has started, customers will join in the order in which they visit the website.
- To make the booking process as easy as possible for everyone, you won’t be able to select your own seat when booking on the public on sale day. You’ll be able to choose a section according to ticket price, and then the website will automatically select the best available seats for you to give everyone the best opportunity of purchasing tickets quickly before they sell out. You can see the seating plan for our Donald Gordon Theatre here.
- If you have a specific seat requirement, such as needing a wheelchair space or an aisle seat, please contact the Ticket Office when the ‘select your own seat’ function is disabled online, and they’ll be able to assist with your booking. If you have a Hynt card, contact the Ticket Office beforehand to ensure that it is registered on your account so that you’ll be able to see the Hynt price type online when booking.
- Once purchased, you’ll receive a confirmation email with your e-tickets, which you’ll be able to add to Apple Wallet or Google Wallet. You’ll also be able to see your order in your online account. You’ll be able to change your seats or exchange your tickets online to another performance of Hamilton up to 24 hours before your booked date, subject to availability. Read our blog to see how to do this. Please note that only the original booker can make changes to any order.
