Attendance costs £5 per person for Friends, which contributes to the cost of Southbank Centre stewards.  Additional donations would be greatly appreciated, and we specially want to thank Gillian Frumkin, Linda Taggart, and Caroline Tate who have generously donated to support these rehearsals.

We recommend you purchase tickets in advance online, or by contacting the Friends Team.  To purchase tickets on the day, please visit the Southbank Centre Ticket Office in the main foyer.  You can also redeem your Complimentary Rehearsal Pass at the Ticket Office on the day.

Rehearsals typically last around 3 hours, including a short break.  Entrance to the Hall is via the Level 4 Green Side doors.  Attendees will be notified of any changes to the schedule at the earliest opportunity.
