PROMMING THIS SUMMER

We are delighted that Promming will return this summer. Things are a little different this year and we have had to adapt the Promming experience. The low-price, on-the-day Promming tickets will be released at 9am on the day of the concert as usual, but will be sold online only.

For the first time Prommers are able to book two Promming tickets per concert.

Also, for the first time, Promming seats will be made available in the Choir Stalls as well as the usual standing places in the Arena and Gallery which have a smaller capacity this year due to production requirements. By opening the Choir to Promming we honour the tradition of offering as many tickets at possible at a low price point.

Promming tickets cost just £6 (plus £1.12 booking fee).
