Our tips for booking tickets

The new season of classical music events, running from September 2020 through to July 2021, goes on sale to Members on Thursday 27 February at 10am and on general sale on Tuesday 3 March at 10am. 

We expect our website to be busier than usual, so we would like to share with you some tips to help make your booking experience a good one.

The Waiting Room

From 9.30am on Thursday 27 February, there will be a virtual waiting room for Members active on our website. To join this room, either click 'login' on the top of the page or the ticket button on any of the event pages in Classical Season 2020/21. This is not a queue, so it doesn't matter at what time before 10am you join. 

At 10am everyone in the waiting room will be allocated a random queue number and moved into the booking queue, giving everyone a fair chance of being able to secure tickets.

The queue

You don't need to refresh the page at this point, as the queue will start automatically. When it is your turn, you will be prompted to log in and then you can proceed to purchase. 

Anyone joining after 10am will be allocated a number at the back of the queue. We advise that you check your login details before tickets go on sale.

Once you have added your first tickets to the basket you will have 45 minutes to finish your selection and complete your purchase.
