2018 seating plan
Top price RED seats are in the Nave; second category YELLOW seats are further back in the Nave and in the front 5 rows of the North and South Aisles; third category seating (BLUE) is to the rear of the aisles with a semi-restricted view; fourth category seeing (OLIVE) have little or no view of centre stage. Wheelchair spaces with accompanying seats are marked: W.
Seats in the rear two rows of the Aisles will generally only be available when the doors open 45 minutes prior to each concert. Seating is unnumbered for the Family Concert and the Organ Recital. If you book by post, you will be allocated the best available seating at your chosen price level at the time your postal order is processed. The seating plan for the piano recital on 29 June has a slightly different allocation of price levels, to take account of sightlines to the pianist, who will be positioned to the left of the stage. Book online for all concerts and make your seating selection from the interactive seating plan (except the Family Concert and Organ Recital, for which seats are unnumbered).
