Over sixty percent of our events are free.

All bookable events can be booked online. The majority can also be booked by phone or in person – please see General Information below for details.



Many of our events are ‘free – just turn up’. Free events operate on a first come first served basis, so please leave good time to arrive at events to avoid disappointment. Some events will run a bucket collection – please donate to support the Festival.



Some free events with limited availability can be booked in advance, and we recommend that you do so to avoid disappointment. Bookings can be made in advance until 6pm the day before the event and remaining capacity will be available on the door, subject to availability. Uncollected tickets will be released 5 minutes before start time, so please arrive promptly.

Tickets  £12 / concessions £10

(Concessions are available for under 16s, senior citizens, unemployed patrons, disabled people and full time students).
