Wigmore Hall launches discount ticket scheme for under-35s


London’s Wigmore Hall has teamed up with Classic FM to launch a discount ticket scheme which will provide under-35s with £5 tickets to concerts at the venue.

The scheme has been set up with the aim to maximise the number of young people experiencing concerts at the chamber music venue.

Sam Jackson, managing editor of Classic FM, said: ‘Over the last few years, Classic FM’s audience of under-35-year-olds has dramatically increased.

‘Now, working with Wigmore Hall, we want to encourage those listeners to experience live music in one of the world’s finest chamber music venues.’

John Gilhooly, director of Wigmore Hall, added: ‘I am so grateful to Classic FM for supporting this vital strand of our work at a pivotal moment in its development.

‘Collaborating with Classic FM on the under-35s scheme is tremendously exciting for Wigmore Hall, and allows us to further build relationships with younger audience members, and nurture the next generation of chamber music and song lovers.’

A total of 25,000 discount tickets are available through the scheme, including concerts by Artemis Quartet, Vox Luminis and Alice Coote.
