The B:Music box office operates a ‘per ticket commission’ of £3.50 which is stated within the advertised price of the ticket, reducing the amount received by Ex Cathedra. No fee applies to tickets priced £15 and under, or those purchased as part of a package of 5+ concerts booked at the same time, and is reduced for group bookings as outlined above. If you book in this way you will pay less than the prices advertised on our website.

Other box offices

Tickets for many of our concerts are sold via other box offices. Approaches will vary but, as far as possible, we seek to harmonize the discounting to be consistent with our Birmingham season and the details above should act as a guide to what to expect. Please check with the appropriate box office when booking.

Savings from concert packages are only available via the B:Music Box Office but other savings will be stated where multiple concerts are sold through another box office and a discount has been made available.
