The onsite Festival Box Office will be located on the grassy area outside the courtyard at Paxton House. Unsold tickets for all events will be available for purchase from one hour before the advertised concert. 

Please note: we will not be accepting cash payments at the onsite box office. 

Concessions are available to those under 18, in full time education, registered unemployed, disabled persons and their carers/escorts. Regretfully, we are not able to offer concessions to senior citizens.

Limited free tickets are available to those aged under 26 for selected concerts thanks to the generosity of the Cavatina Chamber Music Trust ticket scheme. Tickets are allocated on a first come, first served basis, and may be booked in advance or on the day of the concert, subject to availability. Full price tickets may be booked at the same time for accompanying adults. Simply look out for the Cavatina logo to identify the eligible concerts.

Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable unless we are obliged to postpone the Festival for health and safety reasons, in which case full refunds will be available on request.

Apple & Google Wallet

In your e-ticket you will find an Apple and Google Wallet link for each performance booked. When viewing your e-ticket on a suitable mobile device, just click the relevant option and it will load the e-ticket to your wallet. 

Due to restrictions placed by Apple and Google. This option is not available if you purchase 10 or more tickets for a single performance.

If your ticket is refunded due to a show cancellation it will still appear in your wallet, therefore you will need to delete it yourself. 

You can share a QR code using Apple and Google Wallet. This will create a QR code per ticket rather than the QR code per transaction in the e-ticket. Once the tickets are added to your wallet, open the wallet on your mobile device and follow the ‘Share’ options. Please note, you can only share e-tickets to and from the same device type (ie Apple to Apple). 

We would recommend using the standard SMS to share the QR code, as the design of the message created by Apple and Google Wallet is clearer using this format. 

Once you have shared the ticket, we would recommend deleting the ticket from your own wallet to avoid confusion when getting tickets scanned. 


Unless otherwise indicated, concerts take place in the Picture Gallery (up the stairs at the far side of the courtyard).  

Paxton House has fully disabled access: assistance may be required for wheelchair users wishing to use the lifts, and we would encourage visitors with additional access requirements to let us know in advance, so that we can make all arrangements necessary for your comfort. 

Please note:  latecomers may not be admitted
