Tickets for events at Boiler Shop are available via Ticketweb.
If you have a question about your tickets, please get in touch directly with the ticketing outlet. Please note, the venue is all standing unless specified on your ticket.

We do not sell tickets over the phone; and don't have a physical Box Office. Tickets are available online only, and cannot be pre-ordered ahead of the on-sale date.

Once an event is sold out it will be marked as sold out on our website and there will no longer be a ticket link. Once this happens, the tickets really are sold out.

Tickets purchased on the door on the night of the show must be paid for in cash.
