We are operating with Covid safety in mind at all times. The Friday matinee will have limited audience numbers to allow distancing.

Tickets may be purchased online using the link below and they will be emailed to you (please check your junk mail and email us if you haven’t received them within 24 hours).

Alternatively send a cheque (write on reverse which performance you want, and your name, address and phone number) to: Bedfordshire Music Trust, The White House, Odell Road, Sharnbrook, Beds, MK44 1JL and your tickets will be held on the door.

Each audience member must show their ticket with unique QR code at the door (printed version or on mobile). Tickets may be available on the door if there are still seats available, with payment by cash or cheque only. In the event of cancellation of any performance due to Covid, we would appreciate if you are able to donate your ticket price since BMT is a Charity and we’re unlikely to recoup costs incurred. Otherwise a refund will be issued less any debit/credit card booking charges.
