Box Office and Useful Info

Priority booking for Friends of the Festival opens on 16 July and tickets go on general sale on 22 July.
Book online at anytime or by phone on 01491 575948 between 10am – 4pm, Monday to Friday.

From Saturday 28th September to Sunday 6th October, book in person at the box office in the Festival Hub, Market Place, RG9 2AQ (open from 9:30am daily – see p.4-5 for more information) or via the contact details above.

On Thursday 3rd October, the box office will move to the Festival Office, RG9 2DG (next to the Citizens Advice Bureau, opposite the side of the Town Hall) for that day only.

Tickets can only be collected from the box office, so please allow enough time to visit the box office before your event starts.

Waiting lists will be available for all sold-out events. If any tickets are released or exchanged, the waiting list will be contacted by email only and tickets will be sold to those who purchase on a first come first served basis, as the waiting list is not saved in order. Waiting lists do not apply when the festival begins. During the festival if any tickets are released they will be sold at the box office. We also advise seeing if there are any tickets on the door at the venues during the festival – for these it is best to bring cash.
Book clubs and other groups should contact the Box Office on 01491 575948 for multi-buy discounts.
Children under two years old do not require a ticket for any event unless otherwise specified.
