Booking Information

The Presteigne Festival uses a simple system with multiple ticket types available for different areas of venues used by the organisation. In order that Covid-19 protocols are observed, ALL seats for the 2021 Festival must be booked in advance.

Premium tickets are available for events at St Andrew’s Church, Presteigne and in Hereford Cathedral; they are numbered and afford excellent views of the stage; sight-lines in other areas are less good.

Student tickets are available to individuals over the age of 10 and in full-time education (including university). Student concessions are available in both Premium and other areas for all events.

The 2021 Presteigne Festival will operate a Covid-19 safe environment; we expect our audience to follow this simple code:

  • Please use hand sanitiser before entering Festival performance venues
  • Please wear a face-covering when inside Festival performance venues
  • Please wait to be shown to your seat by a member of Festival staff
  • After the performance, please remain seated until shown out by a member of staff

Please note that as a result of social-distancing, tickets for many events will be in great demand. We strongly advise early booking online, all tickets MUST be booked in advance.
