Why does the Young Vic website need them?
It helps speed the booking process up. Our website pulls a lot of information directly from our ticketing system in our theatre - cookies help your computer remember most of that information so it’s quicker next time.
Are cookies harmful?
No. They’re just strings of letters and numbers: they’re not viruses. They’re used by a lot of websites to make them better for you.
