£12  £18  £25 ☼ Tickets
Musarc is a not-for-profit organisation and all our projects and events are self-funded. We have a tiered ticket system. Buy a Normal Price ticket if you can. Give Extra to support Musarc’s innovative work and help others to attend the concert for less. Children under 15 go free.

There will be no traditional tiered seating. The artists and the ensemble move as the performance develops. There is a balcony to look down from and we will provide blankets to sit on. There are plenty of chairs for those members in the audience who need to sit down.

Doors and the bar open at 6.30pm. There will be a 20-minute interval during the performance. The main programme ends approximately at 9pm but Jacopo Belloni’s Festa con Piccola Tragedia discotèque will continue until 10pm when the doors close.
