How to book for Members

A detailed guide on how to book your Festival 2021 tickets online.

Welcome to our easy booking guide. We know some of you may never have booked your Festival tickets online before so we have put together this easy to follow guide to help you book your tickets this year.

Before you start the booking process please check that your browser is up to date. Our website has been developed to work with the latest versions of Google Chrome, Safari, Microsoft Edge and Mozilla Firefox. To get the best experience we suggest that you download one of these browsers.

Unfortunately we are unable to support old browser versions or Internet Explorer.  Internet Explorer is no longer developed by Microsoft and is therefore unable to support modern website features.

You can download a PDF version of the booking guide here.

If you are having any problems with your booking our Box Office team will be available via phone from 10.00am to 10.00pm on Sunday 14 March on +44 (0)1273 815 000. On Monday 15 March our Box Office team will be available via phone from 8.00am to 8.00pm.


To allow for social distancing within the auditorium, most seats are arranged in pairs (with adjacent seats left vacant for your safety). Please note: Glyndebourne will follow the relevant Public Health England guidelines at the time of your visit. Currently, the advice for stage 3 (when indoor performances can resume) is that you will be able to meet indoors either as a group of six, or with one other household. This would mean that you could sit next to someone from a different household in your pair of seats in the auditorium.

Online waiting room

If booking is busy, you will be put into an online waiting room where you will be given an approximate waiting time and position in the queue.
