Answer: Although it is preferable and quicker if the front of house staff have a printed copy of your ticket, you can still book your tickets online in advance and make savings if you bring along the booking reference number (or can show the email confirmation on a mobile device) and some ID that matches the booking name. The Front of House Staff can then check the records and allow entry from there.
