Experience the London Symphony Orchestra for less with Wildcard tickets for evening concerts at the Barbican (exclusions apply *).

About Wildcard Tickets

For £12 or £16 (£10 or £15 for Half Six Fix concerts), plus booking fee, you are guaranteed entry to the concert but you won’t know your exact seat until the evening of the performance.

You could get lucky with a top-price seat in the stalls or circle, or slip in at the back of the balcony. That’s the chance you take to save.**

Wildcard tickets will be available each season on a first-come, first-served basis, with staggered releases through the season.

Browse Barbican Concerts

* Exclusions as per multibuy offer above.
** Top-price seats are worth at least £65 (£35 for Half Six Fix concerts); bottom-price seats are worth £18.

How it Works

  • Look for the Wildcard button on each event listing, then book your discounts (online booking only).
  • Please note that there’s a limit of two tickets per person per concert. We cannot guarantee that two tickets purchased at the same time or individually will be seated next to each other.
  • Once purchased, a Wildcard ticket guarantees you entry, but your seat won’t be assigned until the evening of the concert.
  • On the night, go to the Barbican Box Office on the Stalls level (–1) to exchange your Wildcard ticket for a valid concert ticket.
  • Available Wildcards for a concert may rise in price from £10 to £15 or from £12 to £16. Make sure you book early for the best price.

£4 booking fee per transaction. Online booking only. Tickets subject to availability, max two per person. Cannot guarantee that two tickets purchased at the same time will be seated next to each other. Wildcard tickets must be exchanged for a concert ticket at the stalls box office on the evening. No substitutions, exchanges or refunds within 24 hours of a concert. Cannot be combined with any other offers or discounts.
