We can’t guarantee you a ticket on the door, so please book your tickets early! Luckily, there are a number of ways to easily book your tickets before the show.
On days where performances are scheduled in our Main House our box office will be open one hour before the start time. For events in our Studio Theatre and Theatre Bar the box office will be open 30 minutes before the start time. Please note that phone lines during this time may not be open. At certain times of the year our opening times may vary. Please check the times on our website before you make a special trip.
You can also purchase tickets for events at the theatre at Weston Museum and the Visitor Information Centre.
The best way to book tickets is from the comfort of your own home, desk or online whilst out and about. To book tickets this way, find the show you want to see and follow the online booking link. Please note, a booking fee is added for online sales.
Please read our additional information about booking tickets.
Finding the Theatre
The Blakehay is located on Wadham Street in the centre of Weston-super-Mare, 5 minutes walk from the north end of the seafront and a 15 minute walk from Weston-super-Mare train station. There is a public 24 hour pay & display car park next to the theatre and charges apply 7 days per week. Please note this does get busy and so it is advised to arrive early.
Everyone is welcome at the Blakehay and we will do whatever we can to ensure you have an enjoyable visit. Staff are always available to help, so please ask us if you need assistance especially if you are unsure in an emergency evacuation. To ensure any special requirements you have are met, we ask that all patrons who use a wheelchair or have specific seating or access requests, contact the the theatre directly.
The theatre has ramped access into the foyer and theatre bar and level access into the main house, where up to four wheelchair users can be accommodated with seating for a friend next to you. There is a fully accessible Disabled toilet in the foyer. If you purchase tickets in rows A & B these all have level access into the main house and just one step up to access row B.
Guide dogs are welcome in all parts of the theatre and we can usually ‘doggysit’ during events if required. Enquire at the Box Office when you book your seats. Unfortunately the theatre does not have a hearing loop installed.
If you do require assistance before or after the show, or during the interval, please ask a member of staff. Drinks can be bought to your seat in the auditorium or bar.
Please note that there is no disabled access to the first floor studios including the Studio Theatre.
Facilities for Babies & Children
The theatre has a baby changing facility in the disabled toilet, and we are breastfeeding friendly. All children under the age of two are free of charge, unless stated otherwise, but please come to the box office on arrival for a special ‘Babes in Arms’ ticket before going into any ticketed event.
Please note that prams and pushchairs are not permitted into the main house or studio theatre unless previously agreed with the theatre, and a wheelchair space is available. These can be stored, if folded, in the theatre foyer during performances. The theatre is a breast feeding Friendly venue.
