KEY TERMS & TIPS:
How do I reserve tickets?
By going to the Box Office page and selecting the channel you want to reserve tickets under. Then you can select the performance and add the tickets you want to reserve to your basket and continue to the next step.
Once you have entered the customer details, select the Save as Reservation option and in the pop-up choose to either reserve them indefinitely (i.e. until you complete the transaction or manually release them) or enter a date and time when the reservation should automatically expire and the tickets are released. The order will then be reserved.
