Problems with Ticketmaster?
Purchased tickets can be accessed via the Ticketmaster app on a smartphone or the Ticketmaster website. Tickets can also be downloaded to a wallet in advance (see Ticketmaster Help). There is free WIFI at the venue for customers to use. If you are unable to access your account when you arrive, the box office will be able to help. If you have any queries about how Ticketmaster works or do not have a smart phone, please visit the York Barbican Website for further assistance ahead of the concert.
Where can I park?
The closest parking is on Kent Street, a privately run car park owned by QPark.
Other parking is available on Peel Street and, a little further away, on St Georges Fields. These two are Pay and Display and run by City of York Council; although a little further away, they are useful and cheaper alternatives as QPark can become very busy on concert night.
Can I join the orchestra?
Of course! If you are interested in joining the orchestra, please get in touch via the form on the contact us page. We are looking for a standard of at least Grade 8 with confidence as a sight-reader and some experience of playing in a symphony orchestra. Acceptance as a member will depend on vacancies available and, most probably, an audition with the Music Director and the section leader or section principal. We only rehearse a few times immediately prior to a concert, so attendance at all rehearsals is expected - as well as bringing your own music stand! Sheet music is made available a couple of weeks prior to the commencement of rehearsals and players are encouraged to pick up their set of parts and become familiar with the programmed works before attending the first rehearsal.
Are there any Covid-19 restrictions in place at the venue?
There is no requirement to show COVID passports or wear masks. All seating is by reserved ticket allocation - there is no requirement for social distancing.
Where can I buy tickets?
Tickets are available on-line from the York Barbican box office's partner TicketMaster. Click on any of the "Buy tickets" buttons to link through to the relevant Ticketmaster page. We would urge our audience members to book their tickets on-line as this is by far the easiest method and avoids queuing delays on the evening of the concert.
How much are tickets?
Unless otherwise advertised, tickets for our concerts at the York Barbican are priced as follows: General Admission: £24.50 (centre stalls) & £18.50 (side stalls and balcony). Children and Students in full time education: £7.50 (all areas). The prices quoted here include service and facility fees as charged by the York Barbican Box Office, over which the orchestra has no control. There may also be an additional transaction fee, irrespective of how many tickets are purchased. The orchestra reserves the right to amend ticket prices should circumstances change.
