Ignite your students’ exploration of the arts with our ticket bookings, grants and subsidy schemes.

You can contact Esplanade Box Office at 6828 8389 or email boxoffice@esplanade.com to make a booking.

The ticketing system is dynamic so the availability of tickets changes constantly. It’s best to reserve your tickets as soon as possible with Esplanade Box Office and make payment within the given time.

Tickets are generally reserved for 14 days, afterwhich a payment advice will be sent to your school. If the reservation is made less than 21 days before the performance, payment must be made immediately. Reservations will be cancelled if there is no confirmation one month before the performance. Do make payment within the given time so that we do not hold seats at the expense of others who would like to catch the same show!

When your tickets are ready, we’ll call or email you, so do check your email inbox. For all modes of payment, tickets can be collected at the Box Office at Esplanade, Mezzanine Level, 12pm – 8.30pm daily. Alternatively, you can collect your tickets at the venue on the day of the performance upon request.

You may change the number of seats that you’ve reserved. Any request to increase the number of seats is subjected to availability. However, once payment is received and tickets have been processed, cancellations and exchanges are not allowed.
