Fringe By The Sea - How do I apply for a refund for an event (or return a free ticket)?

Note - If the event you're attending has been cancelled, please follow the instructions in the event cancellation email you receive from the organiser. 

All Fringe By The Sea tickets are non-refundable however the organiser will consider applications for refunds in extenuating circumstances in which case please apply for a refund with specific details in the message box. It will be at the organisers discretion whether to approve or decline the request. All requests are dealt with on a case by case basis.  Please note that all refund decisions are at the discretion of the organiser. All refund policies are displayed at the point of purchase and during the refund application process for full visibility. 

Resell / Transfer

The organiser also suggests trying to resell tickets via a local Facebook site such as North Berwick News if you no longer need them.

You can also use the transfer feature via your Citizen Ticket account if you would like to transfer the ticket(s) to a friend or family member. This feature will change the name of the ticket holder. Please check out this article for more information on how to transfer: Transfer my ticket(s) to a friend
