Pricing and Seating

To give greater customer choice the Festival has banded ticket prices for many events.

Please note that the lowest price is for unreserved seats and/or seats which offer very limited views of the performance area.  In St Magnus Cathedral this will include some seats with no view.

Unreserved seats are available from the opening of ticket booking.
