How to Book

Tickets go on sale to our Friends first on 19th July and on 29th July for the general public.  If you become a Friend, have purchased tickets in the past or have registered to receive information about the Festival, we will send you an email to let you know that tickets are on sale.  There are three easy ways to book your tickets:

Choose the event(s) you want to see, add them to your shopping cart and checkout. You can pay using a debit card or credit card. You can choose to receive your tickets by email so you can print them at home or show the ticket on your mobile device to access your event.
