Choosing a seat

Can I choose my seats?

Absolutely! Regardless of how you book, you'll have the option to choose your seats. For events without assigned seating, it's general admission. For highly popular events, seats are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please be aware of our single-seat policy. Online bookings won't allow a single seat to be left unoccupied. However, this restriction may be lifted within 48 hours of the performance. Feel free to reach out to the Box Office with any enquiries.

Can I have an aisle seat?

Sure, if there's an aisle seat open, it's all yours!

Where are the best seats located?

It's really up to personal preference, but we recommend the centre-raised stalls downstairs and the front right/left or centre circle upstairs.

Seating Plans | Venue Cymru



What does Restricted View mean?

Restricted View seats (RV) might have a safety rail (e.g. circle row I), an overhang, or a side view, slightly obstructing the sightline. These seats are usually cheaper for week-long shows due to the limited view and may only be available directly from Box Office.

Can I change my seats within a week long run of a show?

Yes, we can accommodate seat changes within the same night at no extra cost unless the seat prices differ. If you want to switch to a different night (e.g., Monday to Thursday), there's a £2 per ticket exchange fee plus any price difference. However, for sold-out shows, seat changes are unlikely. Please note that seat changes must be within the same show; switching between different shows is not permitted.

Can I upgrade my seats before the show?

Yes! If there are better seats available, you can upgrade by paying the price difference, if applicable. Just reach out to our Box Office Team for more information on seat upgrades.

  • Flat Front Stalls: 42cm height from floor to seat, 44cm width, 42cm depth, with a 54cm high seat back.
