U25s gives young people and school groups the opportunity to experience live music performed by international artists in a beautiful concert venue.

A limited number of free tickets are available at selected concerts (see below for forthcoming events). These are allocated on a first come, first served basis and tickets must be booked before 6:30pm on the date of the concert. Full-price tickets can be booked at the same time for accompanying adults.

For Schools

Free tickets and free pre-concert workshops are also available for schools.

A workshop leader will visit your school prior to the concert and lead an interactive session devised to complement the concert programme. The workshop will be scheduled to fit as closely as possible with your timetable, and suitable content with direct curriculum links will be devised in partnership with the relevant staff members.

Schools groups attending U25 concerts also receive free programmes.
