Booking for the 2015 festival is now open!


Welcome to the online Box Office. To purchase tickets, please enter the number of tickets you require for each concert you would like to attend. Festival and Day Passes may also be purchased: these are listed below the individual concerts. Once you have completed your selection, click the ‘ADD TO CART’ button below the form. You can then review your purchases before proceeding to the payment stage.

A booking form is also available, should you prefer to order your tickets by post and to pay by cheque: please email Em Marshall-Luck, the Festival’s Founder-Director, if you would like this to be sent to you.

Tickets may be held for collection at the Festival Box Office or posted to you at a cost of £1.50. You may select which option you prefer when you review your ticket purchases. Please note, however, that tickets purchased after Friday 15 May will not be posted, but will be held for your collection at the Festival Box Office.

If you are a member of the EMF Friends’ Scheme as an Associate, a Champion or a Benefactor, you are entitled to a number of free tickets as one of your benefits. To request your free tickets, please email the Festival Director, Em Marshall-Luck, with your requirements and she will be happy to help you. Please note that your chosen tickets will be held for collection at the Festival Box Office and will not be posted. However, should you wish to purchase more tickets and ask for these purchased tickets to be posted, we will, of course, be delighted to enclose your requested complimentary tickets also.

Please note that because we have to order food well in advance, pre-concert buffets MUST be booked by Friday 15th May at the very latest. Any booking made after this will not be processed, and tickets will not be available at the door for these buffets.

All purchases made through this website are securely processed using PayPal. At no stage during the transaction are bank or credit card details made available for viewing by The English Music Festival. Ticket purchases are subject to our Booking Conditions.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 2015 EMF!
