How do the tickets work?

When you have purchased your tickets you will receive an email from us which contains a link back to this site. You must click on this link and print off your tickets to bring with you to PAD.

Each ticket has two unique barcodes, which will be checked at the entrance to PAD.

Tickets are not transferable. The purchase of a ticket can, however, be made by a third person who is not visiting the exhibition. Tickets may not be copied or reproduced.

Each ticket admits one person only.

Each ticket is only valid for a single entry. It is forbidden to duplicate it under threat of prosecution. Violators will be strictly detected thanks to its double electronic protection.

How long is the ticket valid for?

When you purchase your ticket you buy a ticket for a specific day. The ticket allows the holder to enter the Fair at any time on the day specified on the ticket. Entry may be made at any time after the published opening time, and the ticket holder may remain until the time PAD closes.

The ticket is for a single entry only. If the ticket holder leaves PAD, it can not be used to regain entry.

If unused, Collectors’ Preview and VIP Opening tickets may be used to gain entry on any other day of the Fair (Wednesday to Sunday only).

Can I get a refund?

Except in the case that PAD has the need to close the Fair in advance, all sales are final and no refunds will be offered.

Can I get a reduced price ticket?

There are three types of tickets:

  • Standard entry for all adults
  • Student entry for holders of valid Student ID
  • Child entry for under 15s is free, but child must be accompanied by a paying adult.

Discounts may be available at PAD’s discretion. Please contact our support team at

Note that PAD reserves the right to refuse entry to anyone with a Student ticket if the ticket holder is unable to show proof of eligibility at the entrance to PAD.
