You can use the enclosed booking form or the form within our 2022-23 Season brochure. If you subscribe by post, we will allocate you your preferred seats, or the best seats available at the time of booking.

How can I book online?

Online Subscriptions work best for customers who require the same seats for each performance. If your Subscription is likely to be more complicated and you would like varying numbers of seats and/or different seating locations, you are advised to fill out a booking form and return it by post.
