Pricing and Seating

To give greater customer choice the Festival has banded ticket prices for many events.  Please note that the lowest price is for unreserved seats and/or seats which offer very limited views of the performance area.  In St Magnus Cathedral this will include some seats with no view.  Unreserved seats are available from the opening of ticket booking.

For festival performances that are not sold out, tickets are available on the door at all venues.

Special Requirements or Assistance

If you have special seating requirements or have a query regarding access, please contact the Festival office on 01856 871445 or email  We will do our best to satisfy seating requests at all venues.

Most Festival events take place in Kirkwall or Stromness which are 15 miles (30 mins) apart. On weekdays and weekends there is a regular daytime bus service.  Details and timetables are available from the VisitScotland Information Centres in Kirkwall and Stromness.
