House Rules / Policies

In keeping with the theatre tradition – the show goes on if the artist/company is able to perform.

Galeri cannot make or suggest if it is safe or not to travel – that has to be the choice of the individual. In the event of adverse weather, please allow plenty of extra time and consider the road conditions and parking. It is not possible to refund individuals who feel they can’t personally make the journey. However, if we have a run of events/screenings - we do offer flexibility in either exchanging your tickets. This can be arranged directly with the Box Office on 01286 685 222.

In the extreme case of having to postpone/re-schedule any shows, Galeri will inform customers directly (provided we have contact details) and through the website and social media channels.

We try to highlight in our publications if an event has a suggested age guide due to language / sexual references etc. This information can be found in our season brochure and/or this website.

Film screenings are certified by the BBFC. Further information about BBFC classifications can be found here

We do not charge for purchasing tickets from the box office.

A £1 fee is charged on all orders made online and over the telephone – and tickets can be posted for an extra £1.

Management reserve the right to cancel or change (time/dates) from previously advertised events. Occasionally changes to artists/performers might take place due to illness – unfortunately, we will not be able to offer refunds on this basis.

Should you be unsatisfied with any aspect of your visit, we urge you to let us know. In order for us to be able to get to the bottom of your complaint, we would be grateful to know as soon as possible (within 14 days of the date/incident) in order for us to rectify the problem as quickly as possible.


If you wish to make a complaint, you can do so in one of the following methods:

1 | Talk to a member of staff / duty manager
If we can, we would prefer to resolve the issue there and then.


2 | If a complaint cannot be dealt with on the day, we will ask for a written summary of your complaint so we can investigate the issue. This can be in the form of a letter or email (in Welsh or English). We will discuss the issue with the relevant members of staff/department before responding with the official response.


You are welcome to call us if you have any problems or if you have a specific question, contact us:
01286 685 222 | post@galericaernarfon.com
