The ticket admits one person to all Hastings Musical Festival Sessions including the Junior Instrumental Concerto Class.  It excludes the Festival Finale and HIPCC sessions. 

Tickets admit one person to the Schools Day but please make sure you book your seat with the theatre on that day as it is a ticketed event.

You can become a Friend by visiting us at the Festival Office in the White Rock Theatre.
