How To Book Tickets for the Festival


Online and postal booking

Book online by clicking the 'Buy tickets online' links on the Festival Listing page or on individual concert pages. Your tickets will be held for you to collect at the first concert you have booked, unless you request that tickets are posted to you in advance, for which there is a £2 transaction fee.

For postal bookings, please return your completed Booking Form to Lake District Summer Music, Stricklandgate House, 92 Stricklandgate, Kendal, Cumbria LA9 4PU enclosing payment and a stamped addressed envelope for the return of your tickets. A £2 transaction fee will apply to all postal bookings not accompanied by an SAE, and to online bookings if you request that tickets are posted to you in advance.

Please call LDSM Box Office on 01539 742621. Open Monday to Friday, 11am to 4pm. A 24-hr message service is also in operation, on the same number.

Booking in person

Opens Monday 11 June

Tickets will be available from the Lake District Summer Music offices at Stricklandgate House, 92 Stricklandgate, Kendal (Monday to Friday, 10am
to 4pm). Our staff will be pleased to meet you at Stricklandgate House reception and take your booking. Subject to availability, tickets will also be on sale at the venue on the day of each concert from an hour before the performance.


Concessions of 50% are available to under-18s, full-time students on production of NUS cards, and those in receipt of JSA, ESA or DLA/PIP. Appropriate ID will be required and concessions must be requested at the time of booking. Please bring along your proof/identification to the first event you attend, whereupon you can collect your tickets. Concessions are not available on the Festival Saver Deals (see page 14)
and apply only to ticket purchases.


Please check your tickets as soon as you receive them. The Box Office cannot exchange tickets or refund money. Tickets may only be returned for resale (except those purchased as part of a Festival Saver Deal, see page 14 of the Festival Diary) if the event in question is sold out. A £2 handling charge will be made per return.


LDSM reserves the right to refuse admission until a suitable break, or the (first) interval. We regret that babes-in-arms and children in prams cannot be admitted to ticketed performances.
