Some seats will be reserved at the Box Office for Handel Supporters until 27 October. Please contact us if you are not able to find what you want online.
Box office - Please be patient when using the Online booking system - when a lot of people are accessing it it will slow down. It also needs time to calculate your requests. When inputting your personal information into the customer fields please make sure you put the right information in the correct field. The system is very logical and will get confused if a telephone number is in the email field for example! Good luck and you can always ring us for help if you get stuck - 01460 54660.
I am afraid that our system doesn't like Ipads but we are planning to upgrade the system in time for the 2015 Festival.
For updated information about the Competition please go to the HSC page. Results of the Final are on the HSC page.

THE RUN-UP TO CHRISTMAS
The summer months have been spent in planning, organising, chasing information, spending time gardening and having a short holiday. Suddenly September has almost arrived and everything starts to speed up as concert dates and performers need to be finalised; publicity materials have to be created and printed; mailings organised; websites updated etc. So lots to do. We are returning to Chandos House this year for our FUNDRAISER on Thursday 27 November. This is an important event in the year as it brings together our dedicated supporters and some much needed cash for the Festival. We have a lovely concert to start the evening, followed by a delicious dinner and auction. Our annual performance of MESSIAH conducted by Simon Williams will be on Thursday 4 December this year with an excellent line-up of singers: Sophie Junker (HSC Winner in 2010), Sally Bruce-Payne, Alexander Sprague and James Oldfield. The Handel Singing Competition 2015 information is now available...
