Waiting List

If an event is marked as "Sold Out" on the website, please contact the Box Office to be added to the waiting list. Tickets often become available for events later on, even last minute and the waiting list will be contacted as and when tickets become available.


Souvenir Programme

The 160-page full-colour Souvenir Programme gives detailed information on each Festival event. It is on sale for £5 at the Box Office and at all venues from the start of the Festival. It can also be ordered in advance with your tickets; a voucher will be printed with your tickets, to be redeemed at your first event.


Souvenir Programme for Friends

Friends of the Festival who book six or more concerts, or tickets to the value of over £250, are entitled to one FREE Souvenir Programme. Please request this at the time of booking.

Booking Policies


Corn Exchange Booking Charges
All tickets are subject to a £1 booking fee, which is capped at £6 for telephone and postal bookings. No fee is made for tickets booked in person at the Box Office. There is a postage charge of £1.20 on telephone, postal and online bookings.

All tickets are non-refundable. In the case of a sold out event tickets can be returned to the Box Office for resale; if successfully resold an administration fee of £1 per ticket will be chargeable.

Tickets Advertised as Reserved
Seating plans are available to view online. For events with reserved seating you will be able to select the seat of your choice, when available.

Tickets Advertised as Unreserved
Seats are obtained on a ‘first-come first-served’ basis at the event.

Unpaid Tickets Reserved by Telephone
Corn Exchange tickets will only be held for 3 days or up to 1 hour before the event commences, whichever is the sooner. Other venue tickets will be held for 3 days before being released for resale.

Students and unwaged (Jobseeker’s Allowance) £2 off full ticket price. Accompanied children under 16 half full adult price (except family events where children’s ticket prices are shown, and events that are part of the Free for Under 25s scheme – see below). Wheelchair users and the visually impaired receive a free companion ticket.

Group Discount
10% discount will be given to groups of 10 or more. Group bookings should be made 24 hours or more in advance.

Free Tickets for Under 25s
We are delighted to have a new scheme in place to encourage the next generation of Festival audiences. Thanks to the generous support of the Greenham Trust we are able to make tickets to certain events completely free of charge for anyone under 25 years old.

Events that have this option are clearly marked on the relevant page, and you’ll see under the ticket pricing information the words “Free for Under 25s” and the logo shown below. In each case there are a limited number of seats available for the performance that can be taken up and used by those under 25. Anyone under the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult.

Your Details
Your details will be available to Newbury Spring Festival and the Corn Exchange Newbury only, and will not be shared with third parties.
