MHC box office payment changes

We will no longer be accepting cash. Payment for all tickets and donations can be made by debit or credit card.

This decision was made following a University-wide review of available payment methods.

We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause and thank you in advance for your ongoing support of Martin Harris events.

We regret that the MHC Box Office is no longer permitted to take card payments over the phone, by post or by email.

Payment can be made by cheque. Please make cheques payable to 'The University of Manchester'. Payments may still be made over the phone via Quaytickets. Alternatively, customers are welcome to pay contactless or by credit or debit card on-the-door, on the day of the event. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this operational change.
