Explorer Collections

Unlock savings and benefits with just three or more concerts

Our new Explorer Collections have been created to help you make the most of the season, giving you the most varied and in-depth experience, plus exclusive benefits, from everything the LSO has to offer.

To receive a 20% discount and additional benefits, book three or more concerts from one of the Collections below. You can then add any further concerts chosen from across the full season, and get the same or greater discount.

As well as your discount you’ll also receive:

  • Two free Wildcard tickets to any Half Six Fix concert in the season, or the Donatella Flick LSO Conducting Competition Final
  • 20% discount on BBC Radio 3 Concerts
  • 20% discount on LSO Live recordings

Book before 31 August 2020 and you’ll automatically receive the same saving on any further top-up bookings you make later in the season.
