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 the Covid-19 delta variant.  Season ticket requests are suspended for now.  The HCO concert in October has been replaced with a smaller and shorter concert.  We are planning to resume 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.  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). 

There is also a separate pre-season concert of ‘popular classics’ at Hayling Island Community Centre.  For the booking and ticket arrangements, see Ticket prices for other concerts below. 

We are also hoping to have another Sunday afternoon Family Concert by HSO at Oaklands Catholic School some time in 2022, but the date and details are yet to be confirmed.  Details about booking and ticket arrangements will be added to the section Tickets for the Family Concert below. 

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 (£45 since April 2020), 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. 

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 the November concert as planned.  However, Covid precautions will be in effect 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. 

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.

Tickets are also available by post from the Tickets Secretary, as for Season Tickets. 

Obtaining Season Tickets

This season, there are three concerts by Havant Chamber Orchestra at Holy Trinity Church in Fareham, and three concerts by Havant Symphony Orchestra at Oaklands Catholic School.  Separate Season Tickets are available for the three concerts by each orchestra, saving approximately 20% on the single ticket prices, with a further price reduction (‘3 of 6’ prices in the table below) when Season Tickets are purchased for both orchestras, saving approximately 25%. 

A Season Ticket includes a printed programme book for each concert by the relevant orchestra plus regular Newsletters throughout the season shortly before each concert (for both orchestras). 

Season Tickets may be obtained in advance by post via the HADOS Tickets Secretary.  The simplest way to order Season Tickets is to use the booking form which is available in the foyer at concerts, together with the programme brochure.  You can alternatively print your own copy of the Season Ticket booking form using this PDF file.  The file is set up to print the form as two A5 pages (form and attached information) on one side of an A4 sheet of paper in landscape format, and one A5 page of Data Protection information either on the other side of the Booking Information (using “Print on Both Sides” and “Flip on short edge”) or on a second A4 sheet. 

Each Season Ticket holder is also normally automatically entitled to be a voting member of the Havant and District Orchestral Society (HADOS), with the rights for example to attend general meetings and take part in member votes.  However, some people are not legally eligible to be members of the society, such as anyone who is paid by the society for any services during the season (including any paid players), and some others may wish to decline membership for other reasons.  If either of those cases applies, please write ‘No’ against ‘Membership required?’ on the application form.

If you are ordering Season Tickets before the end of the previous season, you can optionally spread your payment across two cheques, with one of them being post-dated to September 1st. 

Further details about Season Ticket applications can be found on the application form. 

You can also upgrade retrospectively to a Season Ticket after attending the first concert at a venue using a single ticket, although in this case seating choices may be more limited.  If you already have a season ticket for the other venue, the additional discount will be applied to both tickets.  The cost in either case is the same as if you had the Season Ticket before the first concert. 

Ordering tickets from the Tickets Secretary

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.
