All events in the Festival are free to attend and open to all.
Online booking is now open, you can book one ticket per person for each event, via the links below, simply click on the link for the event you wish to attend and follow the instructions. Some events overlap, please only book for the events you plan to attend to avoid depriving someone else of a place.
If an event is fully booked, there will be a returns queue in operation on the day, located outside the event venue. Seats left empty by ticketholders will be filled by those in the returns queue shortly before the start of the event. Entry via the returns queue is not guaranteed, but in previous years most of those turning up on the night have been able to get a seat.
Entry requirements vary for events outside the main Festival site. If the event you are interested in is not listed below, you should visit the individual event listing and click on 'How can I attend?' to double check entry requirements.
If you are experiencing problems in booking a ticket, please email firstname.lastname@example.org providing your name, email and telephone number, and we will process your booking manually.
