Book Tickets

We are delighted to be working with Loughborough Town Hall to streamline and improve our Box Office system.

Tickets for LU Arts events can be booked in a number of ways. 

Pre-Booking Online

Many of our LU Arts events require pre-booking online. For these events, a booking link will be provided. During the ticket buying process you will be taken to a secure site, hosted by Loughborough Town Hall, to complete your payment.

When you first make a purchase through the system you will be asked to set up a customer account. This is a simple process and, once you have created your account, there will be no need to re-input your information when making future purchases.

Pre-booking online enables you to save money and print your tickets at home.

Postal Service

Alternatively, you can choose to have your tickets posted for an additional charge of 1. Simply follow the instructions during the booking process to arrange this.

Buying Tickets on the Door

Please note: there will be an additional charge of 1 on the published ticket price for all tickets that a purchased on the door (except Happy Mondays events).
