Tickets and entry

Queries and answers regarding tickets and entry in to Bricktastic.

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 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.

Are free tickets for carers available?

We get a lot of enquiries & this has always been a tough one for us. We have taken the decision after consultation to not offer discounts on tickets for the following reason –  our financial structure of the event is a fundraising one, where every penny of ticket sales makes a difference to the work Fairy Bricks delivers. In 2022 we helped 50,000 children in need of play through our donations to hospitals.

Can we pay on the day?

No! Sorry, there is no option to pay on the day.

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.

Don’t worry if you don’t have your booking reference number, if you scroll to the bottom of the page & enter the email address you used to purchase the tickets it should retrieve any tickets associated with the email provided.
