We act as agent, also, for other event organisers (in these terms referred to as Event Organisers) when we sell Tickets.

Where we sell tickets for other Event Organisers (including those Event Organisers who are using the Cathedral for their event), the resulting legal contract is between you and that Event Organiser, and is subject to the terms and conditions of that Event Organiser, which they will advise you of directly, or through their website. You should carefully review their terms and conditions applying to the transaction.
