Concert Tickets – 2021-2022 Season

We have had to modify our original planned programme of Havant Orchestras concerts for this season because of the risks associated with the continuing spread of Covid-19.  Season ticket requests are suspended for now.  The HCO concert in October has been replaced with a smaller and shorter concert.  We resumed the main programme with the HSO concert in November but with Covid precautions in effect including distanced seating (without our usual price bands), with no pre-concert talk and no refreshments provided during the interval.  For the safety and comfort of audiences and players we are continuing similar precautions for further concerts.  See our news page for the latest updates. 

Tickets for Havant Orchestras concerts

This season, the main concert series for the Havant Orchestras consists of three concerts by Havant Chamber Orchestra at Holy Trinity Church, Fareham (in October, February and May), and three concerts by Havant Symphony Orchestra at Oaklands Catholic School, Waterlooville (in December, April and July). 

Tickets are usually available at the door, but to avoid long queues and get a a good choice of seats it is best to buy tickets for these concerts in advance.  These normally become available shortly before the date of the preceding Havant Orchestras concert.  For the HCO concerts at Holy Trinity Church the limited capacity of the venue means that there is a risk that those without advance tickets may not be able to buy tickets at the door. 

Ticket payments at the door are normally expected to be by cash or cheque (made out to HADOS) but chip-and-pin card payments can usually also be accepted, including contactless for amounts up to the current limit (usually £100 since October 2021), using the iZettle secure card reader.  New banking security rules mean that contactless payments will occasionally be declined simply in order to force the use of a PIN, in which case the transaction should be tried again using a PIN.  Card payments require a reliable internet connection and someone familiar with handling card transactions, so we cannot always guarantee to be able to provide this service. 

Obtaining tickets for HCO concerts

The usual HCO concert venue, Ferneham Hall, is not available this season because it has closed for major refurbishment (to reopen as Fareham Live some time in 2023).  The concerts this season are therefore at Holy Trinity Church, West Street, Fareham.

Tickets normally become available shortly before the date of the preceding HSO concert.  However, in the current Covid-19 situation we have decided to delay ticket availability for each concert until we are reasonably sure that it will be able to go ahead safely.  In the event that a concert has to be cancelled, all ticket costs will be refunded. 

For ticket prices and the seating layout, see the section Ticket prices for main concerts below and the following section showing the seating plans.

Tickets can be purchased online via TicketSource.  You can alternatively obtain tickets from TicketSource by phone on 03336 663366, for which there is an additional booking charge, currently £1.80, including delivery by post.

Obtaining tickets for HSO concerts at Oaklands School

Tickets normally become available shortly before the date of the preceding HCO concert. 

We are planning to go ahead with each HSO concert as originally planned.  However, we are continuing to observe Covid precautions for the safety and comfort of the audience and players.  Seating is being spaced out with distancing between separately purchased groups of tickets.  The usual price bands are suspended and full price tickets are all £12 (as for price band Y), reduced to £6 for students and £1 for under 18s as usual. 

The normal ticket prices and the seating layout are shown in the section Ticket prices for main concerts below and the following section showing the seating plans.

Seat numbers read from left to right.  All seats are on the flat and have the same price. 

In Holy Trinity Church the seats are wooden pews, so we suggest taking a cushion for comfort.  There are side aisles between seats 5/6 and 15/16.  Seats 1 and 20 are unused to leave more space.  There are 12 rows, A to L, in the central section and eight rows, A to H, on either side.  Seats 6 and 15 in some rows (D, H and L) are occupied by pillars.
