FINDING THINGS ON THE WEBSITE
With so many events in the Festival it can be tricky to find what you want.  The events are listed on this Home page (keep scrolling down).  To find details about the events you need to go to the buttons at the top of the Home page - EVENTS for example - there are sub lists for the Talks, Walks, Mayfair Organ Concerts and the Lunchtime Series, if you hover over Events. To book online please click on the BOOK ONLINE button in the top right corner of this page.

Ticket Pricing and special offers: We have made a few adjustments to ticket prices for some events as we want to make sure that our wonderful musicians have an audience. The following offers now apply and we hope that you will take advantage of them:

Oxford Baroque - 12 April - £15 / or 2 for £20

St Matthew Passion - 18 April - rear gallery seats (restricted or no view) £10 / or 2 for £15

Tickets are being sent out all the time but it takes time to log and allocate them all. However you will get them in time for the Festival events. Thank you for being patient.

Please be patient when using the Online booking system - when a lot of people are accessing it it will slow down. It also needs time to calculate your requests. When inputting your personal information into the customer fields please make sure you put the right information in the correct field. The system is very logical and will get confused if a telephone number is in the email field for example! Good luck and you can always ring us for help if you get stuck - 01460 54660.

I am afraid that our system doesn't like Ipads but we are working to see if there is anything that can be done about it.

Happy New Year to everyone. It is now the mad dash to the launch of the Festival on 3 March with Arianna in Creta at the Britten Theatre. Opera rehearsals will take place throughout February and the Handel Singing Competition First Round will also be happening at Craxton Studios in North London and in Paris, if anyone wishes to be heard there (14 January). Singers need to let me know as soon as possible about Paris on londonhandelfestival@gmail.com Booking starts online on 14 January and hopefully our keen Handel audience will have just received their mailing.
