answers to frequently asked questions

I can't print my ticket!

Please bring your ticket(s) with you to the event but, if you can’t print this, you should be able to access them via Get Invited on your mobile phone. Don’t worry, normally we will have a list of all ticket holders at the entrance to the venue so we won’t turn you away if you have registered!

I can’t find my ticket!

If you have registered or purchased a ticket for one of our events, confirmation is always sent by email shortly after you have made your booking. If you do not receive this email, check your junk or spam folder for this email sent by Get Invited or one of our partners. If you have still not received confirmation, please email: Unfortunately, we don’t have a box office or a staffed phone line.

I can no longer attend an event I’ve registered for

If for some reason, you are unable to attend, please let us know as soon as possible on so that we can reallocate your ticket to people on our waiting list. We try to keep as many of our events free but in recent years we have noticed more and more people failing to show up which prevents others taking up these places. We don’t want to impose charges to encourage attendance so please let us know if you are unable to use your ticket so we can pass it on.

I’ve purchased a ticket and can no longer able to attend – can I obtain a refund?

Unfortunately, we are unable to make refunds or exchange tickets unless the event is cancelled or postponed. If this is the case, refunds can be made through the point of purchase.

can I make a donation to help keep the festival mostly free?

Yes – please consider making a donation via our website and ticketing system to allow us to run future events. As a registered charity, we don’t have any staff or major administrative costs, so every penny will help keep us running for future years. Imagine! Belfast is a not for profit (company number NI 614137, charity number NIC 101004).

are there be tickets available on the day if I want to go to an event?

Although many of our events do sell out well in advance, please check our website and social media platforms for the latest updates on ticket availability. For some events, you are welcome just to ‘walk in’ but usually you are better to register for a ticket to guarantee a place.

disabled access

We strive to be as accessible as possible but if you have any queries about disabled accessibility, please contact us at or contact the venue directly. We are happy to provide a PA (Personal Assistant) ticket at no extra charge for disabled people needing essential assistance.
