Collecting Tickets

Upon purchasing your Festival Pass and/or Event Tickets, you will receive a receipt by email. This receipt is not your pass or ticket, and must be exchanged for a pass or ticket at the Festival Hub at Visit York.

The Festival Hub will be open 9:00 – 17:00 Thursday 3 – Sunday 6 November 2016. Tickets cannot be collected before this time.

If you would like to collect your tickets after 17:00 during the Festival, you can do this at 1331 Bar and City Screen.

Entry to Venues

Seating at screenings is allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Seating is not reserved at screenings, and a Festival Pass or ticket does not guarantee you a seat at your chosen screening.

Festival staff will be present at all venues, and will be able to advise you on venue capacity and available seats when you arrive.

Restricted Screenings

Please note that the majority of screenings will be certificate 12A with some certificate 15.
