Tickets for guest nights at the Black Swan are available from www.wegottickets.com. Search under venue "York Black Swan" or click on the links in the listings below. WeGotTickets charge a simple 10% booking fee on top of face value and email you a booking reference rather than posting a ticket, meaning you can book until 6pm on the day. Bring the booking reference number with you but do not bother to print out the whole booking confirmation.
Early booking is advised for very popular artists - we do sometimes sell out in advance!
Online concessions are applicable only to retired people over age 60 and to people on Job Seeker's Allowance.
Special concessionary rates (half the full price) are available for under-18s and full-time students, but these tickets need to be booked by phone or email to the organisers - they are not sold online. See our contact details on the Home page.
Early Music Centre concert tickets are handled by the NCEM Box Office, either online or on 01904 658338.
Singers Nights are "pay-on-the-door" only events.

With powerful harmonies, skilled musicianship and beautiful arrangements, Kate Howden and Paul Jones write all their own material and play, guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo and bodhran. In the seven years since they last visited us, they have worked mostly on the rural touring circuit, developing a friendly mixture of songs, tunes and stories that has non-folk audiences joining in and singing along.
