Mystery Seats are the CBSO’s discounted ticket option, giving you the chance to book for selected performances for just £13. By booking a Mystery Seat, you will be guaranteed entry to the concert of your choice, but you won’t know where you are sitting until the day of the performance. Your ticket will be worth at least £25, but you might get lucky with a top-price ticket!
Mystery Seats can be booked online, by phone or in person and are limited to two tickets per person per concert. Mystery Seats cannot be bought as part of a Concert Package and must be purchased at least 24 hours in advance of the concert. When booking Mystery Seats, you will not be able to choose the location of your seats – so two seats booked together might not be allocated next to each other in the hall and your seats may not be socially distanced.
Once purchased, a Mystery Seat order confirmation will be sent to you but does not allow admittance to the concert – you must exchange this for a valid ticket at the box office on the day of the performance. Please allow sufficient time before the start of the concert to do this. Mystery Seats numbers are limited and subject to availability and are not available for Christmas concerts.
Please note that Mystery Seats are no longer available from September 2022 onwards.
