Visit to check live ticket availability and make a booking. We recommend reading our booking FAQs before you place an order, as all ticket sales are final, and non-refundable.

Bring the Family!
We are proud to be a family friendly festival, and offer reduced rate tickets to children under 16 at most events, denoted throughout the programme pages by a C. 

Sharing your accessibility requirements
We’re pleased to be teaming up with Access Card this year to make it quick and easy to share any accessibility requirements with us in advance of events. Just link your Access Card to your online account when buying tickets, and our friendly team of volunteers will help you to have a great festival experience.

Most of our venues have step free access, unless otherwise marked in the programme. Venues which have a seating plan, like Stromness Town Hall, have a small number of wheelchair tickets available in our online sale. If you’re a wheelchair user attending an event with unreserved tickets, please book a general admission ticket.
