The St James Theatre Ticketek box office normal operating hours for ticket sales and collections are Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm; Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

On performance days in all of our venues, the Ticketek Team open the box offices two hours prior to the start of a performance (so there is plenty of time to purchase or collect tickets at the performance venue) and remain open until the end of the first interval.
