How to buy your tickets – the small print!

Ticket Reminder

The Dunedin Symphony Orchestra does not sell tickets through resale sites such as Viagogo. Our only ticket outlets are:
– For concert series subscriptions, the DSO office.
– For tickets to single concerts, the ticketing agencies Ticketmaster (for Town Hall concerts) and Regent Theatre  for concerts at King’s and Queen’s Performing Arts Centre).
The Regent Theatre – for booking in person for single concerts.

The ticket agencies are linked to the ‘book now’ buttons on our website. Authorised agencies are in regular contact with the DSO, have reliable information regarding ticket availability and can provide assistance regarding seating, accessibility requirements or the suitability of performances for younger audience members. We strongly advise customers to only purchase tickets through these authorised agencies.

If you are in doubt, please contact us.
