This booking fee may be reduced for lower priced events. In most cases, a booking fee of 50p will apply to events with a top price of up to £5; and a fee of £1 to events with a top price of up to £10. The full booking fee of £2 will apply to most other events.

If you would like to have your tickets posted to you, an additional fee of £2 per order will be charged to cover the costs of postage.

When you book, you will have the option of adding a voluntary contribution to Chetham’s.
