Venue Information

Our primary concert venue is the Sheldonian Theatre, an historic 17th century building designed by the architect Sir Christopher Wren located in the heart of Oxford’s City Centre. The Orchestra also performs at other Oxford venues such as Oxford Town Hall, Holywell Music Room, the TS Eliot Theatre and the Olivier Hall.  

Doors open 30 minutes before the advertised concert time and 10 minutes before a pre-concert event.  


The box office at the Sheldonian Theatre opens 4 hours before each concert, and 1 hour before the concert at all other venues. 


All our venues have disabled access and facilities. If you require a wheelchair space or have specific access or seating requirements, please call the box office so that we can advise you on the best seating arrangement for your needs.


Unreserved seating entitles you to a seat within your chosen area rather than a specific seat. Sponsors and those with disabilities are entitled to reserved seating in these areas, allocated at the Orchestra’s discretion. 


We will do our best to admit latecomers whenever possible at an appropriate point in the performance. Latecomers will be seated in a designated area until the interval, when they can take their allocated seat.
