Online booking for the 2017 festival is open


The online box office will close at 9pm BST on Wednesday, 24th May. Thenceforth tickets will be on sale from the EMF Box Office in Dorchester Abbey (open from 11.30am on Friday 26th May for the duration of the Festival) and on the door of each concert.

Postal applications need to reach us by Monday, 15th May. We recommend using the online box office if you have any concerns about your order arriving by post in good time.

The last day that we can post tickets is Wednesday, 17th May. Tickets for any orders processed after that will be held for collection from the box office in Dorchester Abbey.

A few important notes about booking meals:

  • Tickets for meals are never available on the door.
  • The George's buffets must be booked in advance by Monday 15th May 2017; the menu changes daily, see George Buffet menus for details.
  • Tickets for the EMF Lunches are available for booking online (until the online boxoffice closes), and then, in advance only, from the Box Office in Dorchester Abbey.

The Programme and Booking Form is also available as a PDF file for downloading.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 2017 EMF!
