Booking fees

ENO charges a booking fee per ticket, these range from £1.80 to £2.25 and will be shown when you select your seats. This fee does not apply to ENO Friends in the priority booking period of seasons going on sale. There is no fee for tickets purchased in person.

Ticket exchanges and refunds for ENO productions

We understand that plans change. English National Opera, as the producer of ENO opera performances at the London Coliseum can, at our sole discretion, consider exchanging tickets for another ENO opera performance. Exchanges can’t be considered in relation to Secret Seat tickets nor to musicals or other shows staged at the London Coliseum. If an exchange is possible a £3 fee will apply to each ticket. Please contact the box office to find out if an exchange might be possible.

Refunds are not available, unless a performance is cancelled.


Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Children under five will not be admitted.

Concessionary standby tickets are available to:

  • senior citizens
