Panto Payments

We are delighted to introduce Panto Payments, a new scheme enabling audiences to spread the cost of their panto tickets over three months.

Panto Payments is completely free to use and has no interest added.

Anyone making a purchase of £45 or more on Sleeping Beauty: The Fairy’s Tale tickets can call the Box Office or visit the counter at Norwich Theatre Royal and choose to split the cost of their tickets.

You will need to make an initial payment of at least one third of the cost but you can make a larger payment if you wish. On the first of each month (or the closest working day), Norwich Theatre’s Box Office team will call you and take another payment. Once all three payments have been made you will be sent your tickets.   

Stephen Crocker, Chief Executive and Creative Director at Norwich Theatre said: “Pantomime is a tradition for many families, and we don’t want anyone to miss out on the joy of a Norwich Theatre panto! We are introducing the option to pay for panto tickets in three installments rather than in one go to help to make theatre accessible to everyone.  Pantomime is a very special time at the theatre, when generations of families come together to enjoy a real treat. We hope this new scheme means we will see you and your family this Christmas.”

What shows can I use Panto Payments on?
Panto payments is only available for use on Sleeping Beauty Pantomime 2023, for tickets on any performance with a total order value of £45 or more.

If a performance is two months away, we can take payment in two instalments. If the performance is only one month away, payment will need to be made in full.

You can also use Panto Payments on merchandise bundles, programmes and other services linked to Pantomime 2023 if they are included as part of your total transaction. None of these will be available to you to collect until the balance of payment has been cleared.

How will you charge me?
When each monthly payment is due, our Box Office team will contact you for payment. You will have up to one week to respond to this; if we have not received payment in that time, the order will be terminated and any value paid up to that point will be added as credit to your account, but cannot be refunded.

What payment methods can I use?
You can pay using credit/debit card, Norwich Theatre gift vouchers, or if at the Box Office counter, cash. You can choose to pay off the balance of your tickets early if you wish to.

What if I cancel my order?
Following the same terms and conditions as all other tickets, tickets are non-refundable. Any payments made up to the point of customer cancellation will added as credit to your account and tickets will be terminated.

If the event is cancelled, will I get a refund?
In the event that the performance you hold tickets for is cancelled, we will refund you the full amount that has been paid up to that point and will no longer contact you for payment.

What if I change my card details?
No problem, payments do not need to be made from the same card every time as this is not a direct debit scheme.

When will I get my tickets?
Your tickets will be released when your final payment is made and the balance is cleared.

Will this affect my credit score?
No, this is a scheme being managed by the venue and has no connection with anything that can negatively or positively impact your credit score.

What will it cost me?
There are no additional fees or interest for choosing to pay in instalments.
