Tickets for the January 2020 concerts will go on sale in the autumn. If you wish to receive an email notification of when tickets go on sale please join our mailing list. If you have an enquiry about these concerts please contact us.
Financial assistance towards the cost of coach hire will be available for state schools attending any venue. After tickets go on sale we advise state schools to scroll down to the section on coach funding below, and to enquire about available funds before concert tickets are purchased.
Refunds will only be offered if a performance is cancelled by the Trustees. In the event of a performer falling ill the Trustees will endeavour to employ a replacement rather than cancel a performance. In abnormal conditions the Trustees will be guided by the published notices of the relevant Local Authorities and the advice of the venue manager in assessing the safety of travel and access to the venue. In the event of a cancellation of a performance, the Trustees will inform attending schools by email or, on the day, by telephone. The Trustees will try to reschedule any cancelled concert, but should a school not wish to attend on the new date(s) offered then a refund will be made. Where an administration fee has been charged by the venue, this part of the ticket cost will not be refunded by Children’s Concerts, but rather a separate refund may be requested by the school directly from the venue. Children’s Concerts is insured by Making Music Insurance Services. Nothing in these terms and conditions affects your statutory rights.
Assistance with travelling costs
Financial assistance for state schools for coach travel to all concert venues has been very generously provided by the Bedhampton Charitable Trust and the Foyle Foundation. Before the concert please first contact Elizabeth Gotto on 01730 262688 or firstname.lastname@example.org giving an estimate of your coach hire cost, and then after the concert you can fill in and return a claim form with a copy of your paid invoice to obtain funding for up to 75% of the coach hire cost. Funds are limited and are awarded on a first come first served basis. We must have received your claim by 1 March 2020.
