ARE THERE SEATS? WILL I HAVE TO STAND UP?
Unlike in previous shows like BIANCO, we now have a brand new seating structure full of beautiful, comfortable seating for all to enjoy. Audiences will not need to stand up or walk around once they have taken their seats.

The new unreserved seating structure (meaning you can't pick your seats before hand) is designed so that everyone has the same extraordinary experience as anyone else in the tent, at the same price.
 
 
IS IT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN?
There is nothing within the content of LEXICON which makes it unsuitable for children and even very young children enjoy and appreciate the production - but LEXICON has not been created specifically for children.
 
 
DO CHILDREN GO FREE?
Children under the age of 3 go free, and will share one seat with an accompanying adult. A ticket must be bought for children above the age of 3. You can do this by purchasing an 'under 16s' (concession) ticket.

People with mobility problems should inform the box office so we can reserve easily accessible seats for them.
 
People who are visually impaired should inform the box office so we can reserve seats near the front for them. They should also let us know if they are bringing a guide dog with them.
