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-£17. 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:
Unwaged (in receipt of unemployment benefits)
Under 26s and Students: For the majority of our events, we offer a set concession price of £12.50 for those 26 and under, and £7 for those in full-time education. Box offices will ask you to show your I.D. when booking.
Unwaged: For the majority of our events, we offer a set concession price of £5 for anyone receiving unemployment benefit, or disability benefit which means you cannot work. Box offices will ask you to show your I.D. when booking.
Carers: People caring for a disabled audience member can book a free ticket from the box office.
Under 16s: If you’re 16 or under, you can book a free ticket from the box office. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult who is attending the event.
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 is a great way of saving time and money when booking (as well as exploring everything we have to offer).
In Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Dundee and Inverness*,Scottish Ensemble offers an excellent value season ticket with the following benefits:
Savings: you’ll save between £2 and £2.50 off the price of each ticket
Ease: book all your tickets in one go and either collect, or have them delivered, together
Priority announcements: you’ll be the first to hear about the next season
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)
