We offer generous discounts for multiple bookings, so you can create your own series of concerts - and the more you attend, the less you pay per concert! Why not take advantage of this offer to hear some unfamiliar music? You can make a multiple booking at any time up to, and including, the date of the first concert in your series.
The offer is available for all prices, including concessions but excluding student tickets.
Tickets must be paid for at the time of booking, and be the same quantity for each concert – you may, of course, purchase additional tickets at any time. We are unable to refund money but if you subsequently find that you are unable to attend a concert, and let us know at least 24 hours in advance, we will be happy to credit the cost against tickets for another concert, subject to a handling charge of £1 per transaction.
