Information about the Booking System
Currently, the only way to make a booking is by postal application. Click on the link below to download a postal booking form.
postal booking form

The system operates as follows
  • Envelopes are dated as they come in and filed as ‘Patrons’, ‘Friends’, ‘Season’, or ‘General’ bookings.
  • As each of the booking periods open those forms are processed in the order in which they were received.
  • Patrons’ and Friends’ season ticket applications will be processed in the appropriate priority period.
  • General season tickets will be processed just prior to other General bookings.
  • Only after the General booking forms have been processed, will we then activate the ‘online’ booking facility.
So, regardless of the category your form is in please return it ASAP. The sooner we get your form the better chance you have of getting the tickets you want.
Forms can be posted or delivered by hand to our office in the Old Police Station in Chipping Campden High Street. Hand delivered post can be left in the Festival post box on the ground floor next to the lift.
NB: Please do not telephone, leave forms or make ticket enquiries at Toke’s Food & Drink (formerly Bennetts Wines) as the staff there have no access to information or the facility to hold booking forms or tickets. Also, we respectfully ask that you do not make any festival enquiries on our home telephone number. We hold no booking information at home so it is ultimately frustrating for both you and us.

Box Office

Because about 90% of tickets are sold during the early postal booking periods, and then online, a physical box office is only open during the period of the festival itself.
At this time tickets will be on sale from our office on the second floor of the Old Police Station. The box office is normally open from 10am-4pm each festival day apart from Sundays. However, it is dependent on volunteers, so there may be odd moments when it is not open.
If you find the office closed please leave booking forms in our post box on the ground floor next to the lift and we will process them as soon as possible.
At all other times please call the enquiry line 01386 849018. If we are not there please leave a message and we will call you back.

Terms and conditions

Tickets are dispatched on receipt of full payment. Tickets are not refundable, except in the case of cancellation of a performance. We
make every endeavour to ensure that works performed are as advertised, but artists reserve the right to alter their programmes and no refunds can be made on the basis of a different programme from the one advertised. Tickets are transferable but student tickets can only be passed on to an adult if the excess sum is paid to the festival. Student tickets are offered to those under the age of 25 in full time training. If you purchase a season ticket and find you cannot attend on certain nights please try to pass them on to a friend or return them to us for re-distribution. We do not offer a refund on returned season tickets but it is always sad to see empty seats at a sell-out concert.

Refunds Policy

Refunds Policy We accept tickets for resale only when performances are completely sold out. If we succeed in reselling tickets, an administration charge of £5 will be made per pair of tickets.
Please contact the box office 01386 849018.


R = reserved (numbered seating)
U = unreserved (un-numbered seating)
S = Student
‘Unreserved’ means you are guaranteed a seat, but they are not numbered. Some have a slightly restricted view, so come early; but it is not possible to secure them before the doors open approx 45 minutes before the concert.
