Distanced Seating

Audience members who would prefer to sit in a socially distanced environment can choose to book seats in the Balcony for this concert, as part of a trial period for LSO concerts during October.

Available seats will be spaced 1 metre apart, and are indicated by an information flag when making your selection during the booking process. Those booking two or more adjacent seats are welcome to move together to sit as one group on the evening of the concert. All audience members are encouraged to wear a face covering unless exempt.
