To book online please go to the top right hand corner of the website page and click on the button. It will take you to the Booking section.

THE NEW ONLINE BOX OFFICE SYSTEM will have a few wrinkles ironed out before next season. Please click on the button in the top right-hand corner of this page. If something doesn't work for you please let us know by phone 01460 54660 or by email if we are not answering the phone -


All bookings will be dealt with in order of priority (especially if you are a member of the Handel Supporters scheme) and in date order otherwise. Therefore there could be a time lag before you receive your tickets if you are not a member of the Handel Supporters. We always receive a large number of orders when the Festival booking opens and it does take our small team time to sort out the orders and allocate the seats and process payments etc.

Choosing your ticket: You will need to Register and create an account. If you already have one please put in your email and password and you should enter the system.

Reserved seats and the online booking system: We have tried to make this booking system as simple as possible, but we are dealing with several venues; reserved seating; unreserved seating etc.  Some seats that appear to be reserved have been blocked off for postal and telephone bookings, but until we have done the final processing (payment and ticket printing) they will not appear as sold on the plan.  Only those bought online will show as sold immediately.

You can buy on the door on the day, if you haven't booked in advance.

Doors open 45 minutes before a concert usually.

If you book 4 days before a performance tickets will probably not be sent out and will therefore be available for collection on the day.

Please bring your email confirmation on the day, for all performances, in case there has not been time to print out your tickets.

Payment: When you pay for your tickets you are transferred to SagePay, which is a separate, secure online payment system.

Postal booking: Postal bookings will be handled in order of receipt and in order of priority. Payment may be by cheque or signed credit card authorisation. Please do not enter a specific amount on the cheque, but state the maximum amount payable at the bottom of the cheque, in case we are not able to supply all the seats you request.

Reserved = numbered seats, advance booking recommended
Unreserved = choose your seat on arrival, but you can book in advance to ensure a seat.

Ticket re-sales and refunds: We will exchange or refund seat bookings whenever possible up to 48 hours before the performance. Less than 48 hours before, the seats will be offered for re-sale once all house seats have been sold.

Enquiries: Disabled access and facilities, and general enquiries - telephone 01460 54660

Administration & postage charges: Please note that we add a 3% administration charge for each credit card order (Mastercard and Visa only) and £1.50 per order for postage for debit cards and cheques.  Please remember to add the postage charge to your order if paying by cheque.

Discounts: If you are entitled to more than one discount, please calculate in the order shown below:
Student: £2 discount per ticket
Disabled: £2 discount per ticket
Booked 3 or more concerts: 5% discount
Group bookings - 10 or more people: 5% discount per ticket for any one performance.
Standby: £6 tickets are available (if the performance is not sold out) to senior citizens, students and the unemployed at the door upon proof of eligibility, 10 minutes before the performance. Lunchtime concerts are not included.

Students: Many concerts are free to full-time students.  You will need to show your student card on the door.

Navigating the online booking system: Information about what to do is on the Home page of the booking site.
