Subscription Concerts 2016- 2017: Twentieth Season

Following a wonderful season last year, we hope what we have planned for 2016-2017 will be equally as tempting as we continue to make the most of the intimacy of our school theatre and bring world-class musicians to your doorstep. Details of forthcoming concerts are below. 

As in previous years you can take advantage of the subscription scheme and buy tickets for all five concerts at the heavily discounted price of £80 – an irresistible price to see such a stellar series of concerts!

Despite the first concert having taken place it is still economic to purchase a season ticket for the remaining 4 concerts. This must be done directly with the Box Office.

Please note that this year all concerts will take place in the Auden Theatre at 7.30pm, with the exception of the Marlborough Piano Quartet concert which will start at 7pm.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you during the forthcoming season.

Booking information

You will need to book your Subscription Concert season tickets directly with the Box Office by telephone, email or in person (please note box office hours). We cannot guarantee that Subscribers will be able to choose the same seat for each concert.

Bookings for Individual Concerts in the Season

If you do not want to purchase a Subscription Concert season ticket you can book tickets for individual concerts on line, by telephone, email or in person.

Accessible Seats

Accessible seats tend to book up fast. If you need an accessible seat you may prefer to book direct with the box office as we can offer advice on the most suitable available seats.

The Subscription Concert season ticket at £80 continues to be cost effective up to and including the EUCO concert.
