How do I book for a Scottish Ensemble event?

Booking for a Scottish Ensemble concert is as simple and fuss-free as possible. For the vast majority of events we offer one set price across all seats in the venue, so the only thing you need to decide is which concert to go to.

If the event is held in a venue with a Box Office, you can get tickets over the phone, through their website or in person. The relevant information is listed next to each event on the What’s On page, but these are the most frequently used venues.

Tickets for each event are sold over the phone, online or face to face.

How much do concerts normally cost?

For the vast majority of events, we offer one set price which ranges from £12-£16. Prices for each concert are displayed next to their website listing: please check the Scottish Ensemble What’s On page for individual events.

Which concessions are available?

Across the majority of our events, we offer concessions to the following groups:

Students
Unwaged (Jobseekers)
Carers
Under 16s

Students/Unwaged (Jobseekers): For most events, we offer a set concession price of £5 for Students and Unwaged. The latter is for anyone who is currently receiving Jobseekers Allowance. For both concessions, valid proof must be presented when booking.

Carers: People caring for a disabled audience member can book a free ticket from the box office. We offer one free ticket per carer attending with a disabled patron; tickets for any further carers attending with that patron are then £5 each.

Under 16s: Children who are 16 or under can book a free ticket from the box office. We offer one free ticket per paying adult (aged 18 or over); tickets for any further Under 16s attending with that adult are then £5 each.

Please note that for some concerts these concessions may not be available, and/or other concessions will be available, depending on the venue, promoter or box office policy. To find out which concessions are available for a specific event, please check the event listing on the What’s On page.

Please check individual event pages for full details of the concessions available for each concert.

How do I book a Season Ticket?

Like many orchestras, Scottish Ensemble announces its new events in ‘seasons’. Many of our customers like to buy a season ticket, which books them in for all the concerts in the season in the city of their choice.

Scottish Ensemble offers an excellent value season ticket with the following benefits:

Savings: you’ll save 15% off the price of each ticket
Ease: book all your tickets in one go and have them delivered together
Great Seats: you’ll be the first to hear about concerts, meaning you can guarantee your favourite seats
Bring a Friend: For key season events, you’ll be offered free tickets to give to friends and family as a way of introducing them to something new
Ticket Swaps: If your plans change, simply swap your ticket for another event in the season (subject to availability)

Are your events accessible to people with disabilities?

Scottish Ensemble is committed to making all of our events as accessible as possible. Each concert hall we work with has its own accessibility structures in place, and when we put on events outside of the concert hall, we do everything in our power to make sure that the venue is accessible to all.

Other services Scottish Ensemble provides are:

– large print versions of our programmes and/or publicity material on request
– programme notes available to read online after the concert

If you have any questions at all regarding accessibility, please get in touch with us on office@scottishensemble.co.uk or 0141 332 4747. You can also check the venue’s website for detailed information on which services they provide – you’ll find contact details for our frequently-visited venues on this page.
