Advance booking for 2020
Currently there are two ways to book ahead for our concerts: by post, using a booking form in our season brochure or downloaded from this website, and by phone.
The new season’s brochure is mailed first to Patrons, and then two weeks later to Friends, giving each group a two week priority period in which to book. We then send the brochure to the rest of our mailing list in time for general booking to open.
Box Office details can be found on the Contacts page.

How to pay
You can book tickets in advance with a debit or credit card – debit cards costs us less per transaction.
We charge £1.50 per transaction (however many tickets you book) for all advance bookings where we post you your tickets. This contributes to the costs of our credit and debit card facility and postage. If we believe tickets might not reach you by second class post, we hold them at the church for you to collect.
A season ticket for all concerts offers six tickets for the price of five. In 2020 this means £90 for top price tickets (£15 a concert), £70 for middle price tickets (just under £12 a concert) and £50 for the lowest price tickets (just over £8 a concert).
Click here for a plan of the church, showing the location of seats at the different prices. The church has a maximum capacity of 230, meaning the acoustic is good wherever you sit. Pillars between the central nave side aisles limits the view from some side and many rear seats. Most of the central nave and side aisle seats are in wooden pews; most of the chancel, altar and West End seats are individual chairs.
Young people and students
Anyone up to the age of 25 and / or a full-time student with a valid ID card from a university or college may book an individual or season ticket at half-price. We welcome children aged 5 or over if accompanied by at least one adult willing to ensure that they are not disruptive.
