Discover classical music with Wigmore Hall’s brilliant young people’s scheme, offering £5 tickets to under 35s.

One of the world’s finest classical music venues is offering £5 tickets for concertgoers under 35.

Wigmore Hall, with the support of Classic FM as Media Partner, are running a collaboration on a discount ticket scheme, which offers £5 tickets to hundreds of concerts every season, exclusively for under-35s.

The scheme will give young people the opportunity to enjoy hundreds of world-class concerts at Wigmore Hall, London.

Wigmore Hall regularly hosts performances by some of classical music’s greatest artists and ensembles – from Steven Isserlis, the Kanneh-Mason family, and The Sixteen, to the emerging talents of many of Classic FM’s past and present 30 under 30 artists, such as cellist Anastasia Kobekina and violist Timothy Ridout.

As part of a common goal to diversify classical music audiences, the Wigmore Hall £5 tickets for Under 35s supported by Media Partner Classic FM hopes to attract younger and first-time concertgoers, breaking down barriers to entry.
