About the Passes

A Festival Pass is the easiest way to access all concerts and study events at the Oxford Lieder Festival. This year’s Festival Tales of Beyond: Magic, Myths and Mortals takes us on a tour of life, death, and the mysterious areas between and beyond. Sprites and nymphs cause mayhem and mischief, while legends abound, from Greco-Roman sagas to the Lorelei and the Erlking.

Festival passes must be bought in advance, but represent the best value, allowing you to attend all concerts, workshops and talks within the specified time range, with a few exceptions (for some Study and Special Events where capacity is limited, passholders will be asked to confirm their attendance in advance - please see below). The full Festival and Week Two Passes are also split into Seating Areas A & B, guaranteeing passholders the best seats in the house for events with multiple seating options.

Pass Type Seating Area Dates valid for Price
Full Festival A Friday 11 - Saturday 26 October 2019 £730 TWO LEFT
Full Festival B Friday 11 - Saturday 26 October 2019 £650 SOLD OUT

The different seating areas apply to concerts were Areas A & B are indicated in the Town Hall, St John the Evangelist (SJE), and Merton College:

  • A Passes: Seating Area A/Front Stalls
  • B Passes: Seating Area B/Middle Stalls

For Event 51. A Night at the Museum we ask ALL Festival and Week Two Passholders to arrive for the 7.30pm start (Group B).


Passes will be available for collection from the Box Office desk at all events.


Your pass guarantees you access to the vast majority of Festival events, however, some of these have limited capacity so we ask you to confirm your attendance at these events by contacting Becca Homer by email or phone 01865 591276:
