What is a Subscription?

An ACO Subscription is a package of concerts within a Season. There ACO Flexi Subscriptions for customers looking to tailor their own Season, or Full Subscriptions for those who want to see as many concerts as possible. Scroll up the page for more information about each Subscription type.

When do Subscription packages become available?

Full Subscriptions become available as soon as our Season is announced. The opportunity to pick the best seats and greater savings is one of the rewards of subscribing to a full ACO Season.

Flexi Subscriptions become available in October, after Full Season Subscribers have had the chance to purchase or renew their subscription, but before Single Tickets are available.

Individual concerts in the 2019 Season become available to purchase from November onward.

Why Subscribe instead of just purchasing tickets?

Subscription tickets cost less than regular tickets, and seats are available as part of a subscription before they can be purchased individually. Subscribers also receive a range of subscriber benefits, depending on the the type of subscription they have selected.

Can I change concert dates if my plans change?

Absolutely. Those who have purchased a Full Season Subscribers can exchange into any other concert in the Season free of charge, provided there are seats available and there is at least one-week until the original performance. Flexi Subscribers can also exchange their tickets, but this attracts a small fee. Learn more about exchanges on our Tickets & Bookings page.

I'm having trouble purchasing a Full Subscription for 2019. Help!

Full Subscriptions have tickets to all performances, so are only available until the first concert at in that Subscription package. You will be able to purchase Full Subscription for 2020 from mid-August, but Flexi Subscriptions are the best option for subscribing to the remainder of our 2019 Season.

When will the 2020 Season be announced?

Our 2020 Season will be announced mid-August. Sign up to our mailing list below to receive an email the moment our new Season is announced.

Can I pay for my Subscription in installments?

Currently, only Full Subscription packages for the upcoming year can be paid for in installments. This allows Subscribers to secure their seats, but pay half of the cost later on. The second half of a Full Subscription installment is generally processed in December of the same year.
