Frequently Asked Questions

When does the box office open in the Curtis Auditorium?
The box office opens 45 minutes prior to the concert.

Are credit cards accepted at the box office?
Sorry, but no. We do not have the facility to process credit card payments at the box office in the Curtis Auditorium.

How soon before a concert begins does the box office close?
The box office will remain open until the stated concert start time. Patrons who have booked in advance should arrive at the concert venue at least 5 minutes before the concert’s start. In the event of a full house, Cork Orchestral Society reserves the right to sell on any pre-booked seats that remain unclaimed 5 minutes prior to the concert.

How do I receive the members’ discount when booking tickets on-line?
COS members can purchase concert tickets from our website at the discounted membership rate by applying a promotional code. This code is printed on the back of your membership card. On-line subscribers will be sent the discount code by e-mail and may collect their membership card at any of our concerts.

If you have paid your membership subscription but have not received the promotional discount code, please contact us at (021) 4215108 – stating your name and membership type – and we will respond as soon as possible with the relevant details.

How do I apply my membership discount code when booking tickets on-line?
To apply the discount code when purchasing tickets through our website, please follow these instructions:

1. Standard members should choose the tickets listed as General Admission / Standard Member; concession members should choose the tickets listed as Concession / Concession Member.
2. Choose the number of tickets you need and click on Next.
3. Enter the discount code printed on the back of your membership card in the box labeled Do you have a discount code? and click on Apply.

The ticket price will now be reduced and you may continue with your purchase.

Is there a different discount code for each concert?
No, the same code is valid for every concert until the end of the COS season in June.

Can I use the code to purchase more than one ticket for a given concert?
Only COS members are allowed to receive the members’ discount. Any extra concert tickets purchased by or for non-members must be purchased at the standard price.

Do I need to print a ticket after I book online?
If possible, patrons should print the online confirmation they receive upon completion of their order. This will allow them quicker access into the concert hall. If you do not have access to a printer, a list of all online bookings will be available at the box office and attendees’ names will be marked off on entry to the venue.

Cork Orchestral Society reserves the right to request that patrons present the relevant membership card if they have purchased a ticket at one of the discounted membership prices.
