FOLK CLUB NIGHTS
Entry to club nights is £7 (on the door only).
We do not sell advance tickets or concessionary tickets for club nights.
Entry to our regular monthly Singarounds at The Ivy House is now £2 on the door. We reluctantly introduced this in order to help subsidise our other nights, and we hope that it is sufficiently low that it will not deter any singers or listeners from coming.
We sometimes put on other events at The Ivy House which are free entry, or which are pay on the door only. This will be clearly stated in the information about the specific event.
We advise our newsletter subscribers as soon as tickets are on sale for a particular concert (popular concerts may sell out early). To subscribe to our newsletter, please see the link on the right of this page.
We advise you to buy your tickets in advance if you can, as we can only guarantee entry to advance ticket holders. Although we always do our best to let in as many people as possible, we obviously have to ensure that the room is not uncomfortably (or unsafely) crowded.
If you purchase online, you will receive an email from WeGotTickets with a unique reference number. You must bring along this reference number on the night, together with proof of your identity.
If you do not receive an email with a reference number, your purchase has not gone through and you will need to take that up directly with WeGotTickets before the event as we are unable to do this on your behalf.
If your purchase has not gone through and we have sold out, we will unfortunately not be able to sell you another ticket on the door, so do please check that you have received your reference number!
Tickets From The Ivy House Bar
Please note that concert tickets will also be on sale at The Ivy House bar at a slightly later date than tickets are put on sale online.
Also, advance tickets will usually be taken off sale at The Ivy House if a concert is close to selling out, to avoid overselling.
Tickets On The Door
If a concert is not sold out in advance, tickets will also be available on the door on the night, – first come first served.
Concert Ticket Prices
Our concert ticket prices now vary depending on the headliner/s. To find out the ticket price for a particular concert, please click here to see details of upcoming concerts and then click on the specific concert you are interested in.
To encourage you to buy your tickets in advance, and thus save us sleepless nights wondering how many people are going to turn up, advance tickets are usually cheaper than tickets on the door 🙂
We usually offer a reduction on our Ivy House ticket prices for unwaged people, ie those without income from a job. Proof of status must be shown on the door.
To try to ensure that we cover our headliner’s fee, we restrict advance online concessionary tickets – usually to ten per concert. First come, first served!
Although children are generally not allowed in The Ivy House after 8pm, we are delighted to say that we have now (2018) been told that they WILL be allowed in the ballroom at our nights. However we do ask that they are of an age where they will sit quietly and not disturb other members of the audience, and also that buggies are not brought into the ballroom where the night is a crowded one.
We like children, but we reserve the right to ask you to leave if we feel that your child or children are disturbing others. If they need to be playing with toys etc rather than listening to the music, then that is likely to be disturbing, as of course is crying, talking during the music or running around. We hope you understand.
Concert Seating – PLEASE NOTE!
The Ivy House is a pub, not a theatre, despite having such a wonderful stage! The concert will be half seated, half standing room. An advance ticket does not guarantee you a seat, and seats are unreserved.
If you want to be sure of a particular seat, or indeed a seat at all on popular nights, best get there when the door opens at 7pm! Of course there will be standing room as well.
If you need a seat for health or other reasons, you MUST take responsibility for arriving at 7pm. If you are not able to do this, please let us know IN ADVANCE that you need a seat. We will not be able to bring in seats from elsewhere in the pub after 7pm.
In line with other music promoters, the Goose does not give refunds unless the venue or the headliner changes or the event is cancelled. If the circumstances are exceptional, please contact us and we will do our best to help.
Sold Out Concerts – Ticket Availability
Where a concert has sold out, we used to put people with tickets they couldn’t use in touch with people who wanted them, on the night of the concert.
This became too much of a hassle for us on top of everything else we had to do, so we reluctantly stopped doing it.
We are delighted to tell you that the lovely Ivy House people have offered to run two waiting lists – one for people who have spare tickets for a concert, and one for people who want to buy tickets (ONLY after all tickets have been sold out).
If you have spare tickets, The Ivy House will give you a refund IF they have somebody who wishes to buy those tickets at their full face value.
We have cleared this arrangement with WeGotTickets, on the understanding that it will only be available for sold out concerts.
Where a concert has not sold out, if you have tickets bought online which you cannot use you will still be able to reallocate them to somebody else via the WeGotTickets website – please see above.
If You Are Disabled
If you are disabled and unwaged, ie have no income from a job, then you are entitled to a concession.
If you have a carer without whom you would be unable to attend the concert, then we are happy to give them a concessionary ticket too.
