Last Updated - 21st May


   NOTE: with the current situation re Covid-19 we are not taking any new bookings and suspect most shows at least to the end of April will be cancelled (some theatres have already said they will stay closed until end 30th June). We will update this page as soon as we have more information. As we receive guidance for any show that is currently booked we will let you know.

We have drafted some FAQ's relating to Shows, so please read these before emailing the taskid, thank you:

Q1:  I have paid the IBM Club London West for tickets for a show that is not running on the scheduled date.  What action do I need to take?
A1:  For the moment, please just wait.  We know which the affected shows are (see list below) and we will update the list when we have further information from our ticket agent on your options.  These will either be to move to a new date or dates if offered or to receive a refund.

Q2:  If I elect for a refund for a show that is either not re-scheduled or only to dates I cannot make, when will I be paid back?
A2:  We will issue refunds to members as soon as the Club has received either a refund or a credit note the Club can re-use. We will not be issuing members with individual credit notes.

Q3:  If I still want to see the show but the offered date or dates are not ones I can make, can the IBM Club make this booking for me using the money I have paid and at the subsidised rate?
A3:  The IBM Club can only book seats on the dates offered by the agent, and we are hoping in each case there will be several date options.  However if none of these suit you then we will request a refund will be paid as A2 above.  You can then book directly for a date that suits you.  In this situation you will need to pay the rate offered by the theatre and unfortunately we cannot subsidise your ticket purchase.

Q4:  I am planning to leave IBM / retire before the shows I have booked are likely to be rerun, can I have a refund now?
A4:  Since as noted above, refunds will only be offered once the Club has received a refund or credit note, make sure you send your new contact email to  so you receive news on rescheduled dates, refunds offered and can let us know what you decide to do.  If we are unable to contact previous members and we receive a refund for a show they have booked, we will make a refund to the bank account used by them for the payment.  So if you are changing bank accounts, please let us know.

UPDATES: For new shows I will show the seats I have been allocated at time of reservation, but please note these could change if I have to add more, or at the time I make payment.

Note: On some events where tickets maybe limited and we are over subscribed we will instigate a ballot for the tickets. 

Note: We may have to set a cut-off in which we only proceed if we sell 6 or more tickets for any show.

We tried a "Red Package" offering at an Ambassador theatre for Mary Stuart, which gave access to a lounge for pre-theatre drink & nibbles (included) and for use at the interval. This was well received, so I will be looking to do it again.
