For more information please email: [email protected]

Please note:

Unreserved seating. No food or drink allowed in the hall.

  • The rehearsal starts promptly at 11am and will last between 2 and 3 hours, including an interval. The rehearsals are usually in concert order, but at the discretion of the conductor this may change. He may also choose to play the works through completely but is at liberty to stop and start as needed. This is often viewed as one of the special qualities of watching a live rehearsal instead of the actual concert.

  • You are requested to treat the rehearsal in the same way as you would a concert - no talking or moving around once the rehearsal has started. When the orchestra finishes the programme this does not mean that their rehearsal is over - if you need to leave please do so quickly and quietly.

  • Secure free parking has been arranged on the Grand Parade using the entrance opposite the castle.


Please note that by buying a ticket on Quicket for a CPO dress rehearsal your email will be added to the CPO and FOM mailing lists for marketing purposes of orchestral activities. We will not use your email or phone number for anything but the dissemination of concerts information.

Photographs taken by the CPO during concerts may also be used in newsletters or on social media.
