Chamber Zone offers an amazing opportunity to come and experience superb chamber music performed by international artists in a beautiful concert venue.

A limited number of free tickets are available for each selected Chamber Zone concert. 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.

Chamber Zone for Schools

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

A workshop leader will visit your school prior to the concert and facilitate 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 Chamber Zone concerts also receive free programmes. Full-price tickets can be booked at the same time for accompanying teachers and staff.
