Tickets and entry

Queries and answers regarding tickets and entry in to Bricktastic.

Do we need to print our tickets?

No, so long as you are able to show them on a mobile device at the entrance.

Do we have to arrive at the exact time printed on our ticket?

The time on your ticket is an entry from time. We do need as many people as possible to there around their allocated time. If however you are booked for the 10:15 slot and can’t arrive until 13:00, we will still allow you to enter. Entry prior to your ticket time is not permitted.

Do under 4s need a ticket to enter?

Yes, everyone needs a ticket to enter. Under 4’s are free with a paying adult ticket.

Can we pay on the day?

We are unable to process cash sales on the door on the days of the event.

If tickets are still available online you can go ahead and purchase. Although with the event selling out well ahead of time in previous years, we wouldn’t recommend waiting!

Can children attend the show by themselves?

In the interests of child protection, all children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Do you offer discounted/free tickets?

Sorry, no. In order for us to keep costs down for ALL our visitors we offer a very simple, one price for all, ticketing structure.  The aim of the event is a fundraising one, where every penny of ticket sales makes a difference to the work Fairy Bricks delivers. In 2023 we helped 50,000 children in need of play through our donations to hospitals.


Where are my tickets?

It sounds obvious, but please check your spam/junk folders in the first instance. If they are not there, please see this page on the See Tickets website.
