TICKETS
If you’ve booked online you’ll receive an e-ticket. You don’t need to print them out, save paper by showing us your phone!  

BOOKING
We keep ticket prices low so as many families as possible can come to our events. You’ll need a ticket for every adult and child attending Festival events, except babies under the age of twelve months. Children under the age of 11 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. We cannot take responsibility for unsupervised children so please don’t drop them off 
and leave. 

AGE GUIDELINES
Our age guidelines are usually based on the reading age of the book, but you know your kids much better than we do, so if you’re happy they’ll enjoy the event, we’re happy! 

DURATION
All our events last one hour unless stated otherwise in the programme and are usually following by book signing. 

ACCESS
Everyone is welcome at Barnes! Assistance animals too! All our venues are wheelchair accessible and if you can let us know you’re coming beforehand we can arrange priority seating for you. 

LOST PROPERTY
Lost your phone? Lost your kids? Head over to our Ticket Office in front of the OSO Arts Centre.

BEXIT
Barnes is our home and we really want you to treat it as your own. Please do help us keep Barnes clean and green by disposing of your rubbish in the bins provided and taking everything home that you brought with you.

PLEASE REMEMBER
All the information in this programme is correct at the time of printing. We’d never cancel an event or switch a venue unless it was absolutely necessary but our authors and artists are real people, just like us, and sometimes due to unforeseen circumstances we do need to cancel or substitute an event. We ask you to understand.
