Below are a collection of the most common FAQs, so please take a look here first!

Making a Booking

Do i have to book in advance?

We always recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment, as many of our shows sell out nearer to the day. You can do this online, or by calling our box office by 5pm on the day of the show.

Where the show has not sold out, providing you turn up early enough we can usually sell you tickets on the door. We don't recommend this for groups larger than 4, and it's best to check with the box office to see if this will be likely - call 0871 472 0400.

As with all of our shows, you can book immediately with a debit or credit card, with us taking full payment online or over the phone.

Where are my tickets?

We are a ticketless venue, it's less hassle for you, and saves a few trees. Once you have booked you will receive an email confirmation of your booking. This is for your own records, there's no need to print it, but do read it through and make a note of the booking reference number (beginning with GL). Upon arriving at the club, we just need the name you booked under, this will gain you entry. If you are unaware of who in your party organised the group, please give a company name.

You can login to the MYGLEE section of the website at any time, to take a look at any current bookings you have with us. You can also amend your booking here.

How many tickets can i book?

Glee is a great night out, whether you are a solo comedy fan, a couple on the tiles or a group of 50. The capacity is the limit! If we’ve got the seats available, they’re yours for the taking.

Can i have a discount?

We offer discounts on some group, birthday, student and stag/hen bookings. Please head to our Groups page and fill out the relevant enquiry form. Alternatively, contact the Box Office on 0871 472 0400 for further information.

Can we pick our seats?

Seating is unreserved, so we suggest you arrive early if you want to be sat in a specific place or with a group of friends. Although there will be enough seats for the amount of attendees, they are taken on a first come basis.

What's your age policy - do i need id?

Our venue is obliged by local licensing to enforce a 'Challenge 25' policy, which means anyone who looks under 25 must be asked for ID. If when asked you fail to produce legally acceptable ID you may be refused entry without refund.

All shows on the listings have an age restriction next to them, for your information. All weekend comedy shows are 18+. We have some touring shows that carry lower age restrictions, which we still need to see ID for, and may specify that a younger customer is accompanied by an adult with a ticket. 

Accepted forms of ID:

18+ shows - Passport / photo driving licence / Prove it PASS card

16+ shows - Passport / Prove it PASS card

14+ shows - Passport / Prove it PASS card

Any customers who cannot prove they are over 18 (or over the minimum age specified if lower than 18) when requested to do so will not be permitted entry to the venue.

For shows where the minimum entry age is lower than 18 we will list specific information on the show listings page. Please call the box office on 0871 472 0400 or email info@glee.co.uk if you are uncertain of our policy. Refunds will not be issued for incorrectly booked tickets.

Food & Drink

Is foo served at the shows?

I'm afraid not. We are located in The Bullingdon on Cowley Road, which has plenty of fantastic restaurants you can check out before or after the show.

Can we get a bar tab?

Sure, head to The Bullingdon Cocktail Bar upon entry, and speak to the staff who will be happy to assist you. (open 4pm - late)

Getting In / accessibility

I HAVE A MEDICAL CONDITION/DISABILITY THAT AFFECTS MY VISIT. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

We will do our best to help and accommodate your needs in a respectful and if required, confidential manner.

Please see our accessibility page for full details.

What happens if i'm running late?

Arriving during the entry time window printed on your confirmation is a condition of booking. If you arrive after this time, entry is at the discretion of the management who will do all they can to accommodate you.

In this circumstance you will be asked to wait until the first possible opportunity of getting you in without disturbing the show.

If a member of your party knows they will be late in advance, it's always useful for our box office to know this, so please give us a call.

Our ticket & enquiry lines are open up until doors opening (7pm), so if in doubt, give us a call - 0871 472 0400.

What's the layout?

Seating is laid out in rows facing the stage. Seating is always unreserved, so we suggest you arrive early if you want to be sat in a specific place or with a group of friends. Although there will be enough seats for the amount of attendees, they are taken on a first come basis.

Will i be asked for id?

Our venue is obliged by local licensing to enforce a 'Challenge 25' policy, which means anyone who looks under 25 must be asked for ID. If when asked you fail to produce legally acceptable ID you may be refused entry without refund.

All shows on the listings have an age restriction next to them, for your information. All weekend comedy shows are 18+. We have some touring shows that carry lower age restrictions, which we still need to see ID for, and may specify that a younger customer is accompanied by an adult with a ticket. 

Accepted forms of ID:

18+ shows - Passport / photo driving licence / Prove it PASS card

16+ shows - Passport / Prove it PASS card

14+ shows - Passport / Prove it PASS card

Any customers who cannot prove they are over 18 (or over the minimum age specified if lower than 18) when requested to do so will not be permitted entry to the venue.

For shows where the minimum entry age is lower than 18 we will list specific information on the show listings page. Please call the box office on 0871 472 0400 or email info@glee.co.uk if you are uncertain of our policy. Refunds will not be issued for incorrectly booked tickets.

Do i need my student id?

If you have booked a student ticket type - we absolutely need to see your student ID! 
Accepted forms of student ID are a validated ID on the UNIDAYS app or an official student card that has a photo and expiry date. If you can’t provide either of these, You can bring a printed and signed letter from your college / university on letter headed paper which must state that you are, or are about to be in full time education at the time of entry to that show, along with another form of valid photo ID.

If you don’t bring satisfactory ID, you will be charged the difference between the student price and the full price ticket on the door, this is not refundable should you find your card or ID at some point later.

During your visit

How long do the shows last?

Our shows are live and generally unscripted, so we can't always predict with certainty when they will end. However, as a general guide our weekend comedy shows finish at approximately 10.30pm. Our comedy tour shows tend to finish between 10 - 10.30pm.

For more specific details on specific touring shows, please contact the box office on the day.

What happens after the show?

Once the show is over, you're welcome in The Bullingdon's Cocktail Bar (which also serves craft beers & coffees if cocktails aren't your thing). The bar is open from 4pm daily, until Midnight Sunday - Thursday, and until 2am on a Friday & Saturday night.

Is there a dress code?

No, wear whatever you feel comfortable in. Some clothes are advised. Some people like to dress up, others go for casual attire. All styles are welcome at The Glee.

If you want to wear fancy dress, go for it, we don't have a problem with you looking a bit silly. However, you will be asked to remove anything that gets in the way of other customers' enjoyment of the show (eg, massive hats, flashing lights, noisy items).

 

Why should I switch my phone off?

The biggest reason is, we want you and everyone in the room to be able to enjoy the show, undisturbed. We've all scowled at someone in the cinema who's phone goes off at a crucial moment, it's the same for a live show.

We require you to turn it off completely, or set it to silent and put it away.

Other reasons:

- We can't tell if customers are recording the show unless phones are turned off and put away, it's illegal to film a show, it is piracy.

- Every time you check your phone or go to text, the phone screen lights up like a Christmas tree. This is distracting to the acts and those around and behind you.

This only applies during the show, you have plenty of time before, during intervals, and after the show to check & use your phone. 

If you need to use your phone whilst the show is on, please simply leave the auditorium to do so.

everything else

CAN YOU RECOMMEND HOTELS / TAXIS / PARKING?

The venue is central and has good access to accommodation and transport.

Please take a look at our Location page for all of these practical queries.

Alternatively, a quick internet search using the venue address will provide options. The Bullingdon, Cowley Rd, OX4 1UE

THE LINE-UP HAS CHANGED, WHAT’S HAPPENED?

Whilst we make every effort to keep line-ups as listed, line-ups may be subject to change on our mixed bill weekend comedy shows. Some acts are unable to play the venue after all, for reasons outside of our control. When this happens, we always replace them as soon as is possible, with another top-notch act.

If you are planning to see one specific act in a mixed bill show please contact the venue before booking and travelling to confirm the act is due to appear.

is it funny?

Yes. Very! We book the best acts working on the UK & International circuit. These are fully-paid professionals, who know their comedy.

If you want to see who's booked in for the night of your show, head to the listings page and click on the performer's face or name to get a full bio with videos & links.

Booking fee?

The booking fee applies to every ticket.

We’re sorry about this. We charge a fraction of the fee that the big boys like Ticketmaster and See tickets do, and we also allow ticket transfers for most of our common shows, which none of our competitors do.

The transparency of our pricing is as important to us as it is to our customers, so we have a small and upfront booking fee that covers the cost to our business. This in turn allows us to staff our box office for all of your enquiries and ticket bookings, allows customers to book online, and to transfer tickets between shows.

Can i get a refund?

At the point of booking you agreed that you would accept that your booking was non refundable. However bookings for all our regular Saturday shows are transferrable, using MYGLEE. Transfers are subject to a £2 per ticket fee and are transferrable up to 1pm on the day of the show.

Please note that bookings to Comedy Tour shows are not transferable or refundable once made.

If you need any assistance in this matter, please contact the box office for advice.

If in the extremely rare circumstance that a show is cancelled, all customers will of course be offered a refund.

I’M ORGANISING A CHARITY EVENT, CAN YOU DONATE?

We are more than happy to donate pairs of tickets for use in charitable events. However, we will need proof that this is going to the named charity.

Please contact the box office at info@glee.co.uk or 0871 472 0400 with your enquiry. Please use this contact as opposed to social media messages.

I have a complaint. What next?

If you have a complaint about anything that is disrupting your experience, please query this with the staff on the night. If we know what's happening at the time, we will do all we can to quickly rectify this for you, and allow you to continue enjoying the evening.

If you would like to make a formal complaint after the event, or wish to send us some feedback, we welcome you to do so. Please contact our Box Office Manager jay@glee.co.uk with as much detail in writing as possible.

He will make sure this complaint is passed on to the managers involved. We respond in every instance in due course, once the matter has been investigated.

Question not covered? No worries, get in touch with our friendly box office team, who will be glad to help.
