Exmouth Pavilion
The Esplanade


Everyone is welcome at Exmouth Pavilion and we will do our best to ensure that everyone has a great time. Team members are available to help, so please ask us if you need any assistance.

There is level access throughout the building to the foyer, toilets, auditorium and café/bar.

We do have a limited number of spaces in dedicated areas for wheelchair users.  To ensure any special requirements you have are met, we ask that all guests who use a wheelchair, are registered disabled or have specific seating or access requests please DO NOT BOOK ONLINE.  Call our Box Office team on 01395 222477 and they’ll do their best to help you.

A hearing induction loop is sometimes available for those with hearing aids. Equally, we can provide disposable ear buds on request.

As most shows appear here only once, unfortunately we aren’t often able to provide BSL performances. If this service is provided it will be listed in the event description.

Sometimes a performance may use strobe lighting, haze machines and pyrotechnics. If you have a medical condition that may be affected by these, please ask us for advice prior to booking your tickets.

Registered Assistance dogs are very welcome.

Ticket, transaction & delivery fees

You can either purchase tickets online, by telephone or in person by calling into the Box Office.

Where possible, you will be able to choose your own seats but as a general rule we do not allow single seats to be left unoccupied when you are booking.  As most bookings these days are for 2 or more people it is hard for us to fill lots of single seats,  and so our website will not let you leave an empty seat between booked seats or at the end of a row. If you require specific seating for accessibility reasons, please call the Box Office.


If you purchase your tickets online you will be able to print your tickets at home or just bring the confirmation on your phone with you on the evening.

In Person 

Our Box Office is open daily between the hours of 9am and 5pm.  On show nights, the box office will be open until 15 minutes after the show starts in order for you to collect your tickets and allow for any latecomers.  After that time the box office will close and you won’t be able to collect tickets.

By Telephone

You can call the Box Office on 01395 222477 during opening hours. We accept most debit and credit cards and we also take cash.

Postage Fee 

if you require tickets posting out to you we can do that for a postage and processing fee of £2.00, and your tickets will be sent out by 2nd class mail.  Alternatively customers can opt to collect their tickets from the Box Office at no charge. Tickets purchased for events less than 7 days away will be retained at the Box Office for collection.

Transaction Fee   

All bookings are subject to a transaction fee of £2 for the whole booking, not per ticket

Exchange Seat Fee and Ticket reprinting  

If once you have purchased your tickets you ask to exchange to other seats, if that seat is available we will reprint your ticket for a £1 fee.  Same applies if you lose your tickets.  We are happy to reprint them for you, but a £1 fee per ticket will be charged.

Ticket Protection  

Currently all tickets are non-refundable unless a show cancels.  However you are able to purchase ticket refund protection at the same time you buy your tickets, vie secure-my-booking.   There is an additional fee of £2 per ticket and you can add this to your shopping cart at checkout.


Resales can only be offered once a show has sold out. In order for us to resell your tickets they must be returned to the venue to be placed for resale.

The venue makes no guarantee that tickets placed for resale will be sold.

An admin fee of £5 applies for this service.

Should we resell your tickets for you, your customer account will be credited with the ticket amount (minus admin fee). We will not issue a refund.

Resale tickets are only available to purchase by contacting the Box Office directly, they will not appear on online seating plans.


Sometimes concessionary rate tickets are available to children, full-time students, senior citizens (those in receipt of state pension) and those who are registered disabled.

Please note these may vary dependant on show. Discounts and special offers may be limited or subject to availability and are at the discretion of the Box Office Supervisor. Unless otherwise stated, concessions and discounts cannot be combined or used in conjunction with other offers.

Gift Vouchers & Account Credits

Pavilion Gift Vouchers make an ideal gift. Simply choose how much you’d like to buy, and you’ll get a gift voucher ticket.  There is no minimum spend.

Gift vouchers for any of our events, and don’t need to be spent all at once. They must however be used within 12 months from the date of purchase.

If you have a credit on your account for a ticket resale or rescheduled show this is also valid for a 12 month period.

If that balance remains unused by the time the gift voucher expires, that credit will be donated to our charitable trust and put towards our work within the community.

Gift vouchers cannot be exchanged for cash.
