Prices for tickets vary depending on the concert, but fall into three brackets: Non-Member, Member and Concession/Member Concession. Members tickets will range from £12 - £19, Non-members £15 - £24 and Concessions £10 -£17. When the concert listings are available the prices will be listed under each concert.. 

Concession price tickets are available to seniors (over 65s), children, students and those in receipt of means-tested benefits (proof required). For more information on means-tested benefits, please visit

Children under the age of 2 on the first day of the Festival (3rd May 2018) do not need to have concert tickets, as long as they are not occupying a seat. 


Tickets go on sale to Early Members at 6pm on Monday 19th March. Given the high demand, even early members may not get the tickets of their choice. However, there are usually tickets available for some concerts when tickets go on sale to the public in April. Tickets sales are open to non-members/public from Monday 2nd April at 6pm.

Each SFFS Member may only purchase one afternoon concert ticket and one evening concert ticket per festival day. 

Online ticket sales will close at 6pm on Monday 30th April (to enable the organisers to process all orders before transferring offices from Burns Lane to the Festival Club). Any remaining tickets will be available to purchase during the festival from the SFFS Shop at the Festival Club during shop opening hours (Thurs, Fri & Sat - 11am - 5pm).

You can pay online using a PayPal account, or by using a Credit/Debit card. You will be emailed a receipt of your purchase, so please make sure you enter your email address correctly.
