Booking Tickets FAQs

How do I find the concert I’m looking for? 

The easiest way to browse out concerts is by going to the What’s On page of the website. Here you will find links to our various concerts arranged by category. If you have a specific date in mind, you can use the Calendar. If, on the other hand, you know the name of a concert but not the date, then you can use the search field at the top of every page of the website. 

At the box office itself on-site at St Martin’s, we have season brochures and leaflets for individual concerts. Not all concerts are covered in this way: the website remains the most comprehensive guide to our programme of concerts and events. 

How can I pay?

The box office only takes payments by credit or debit card. We accept Mastercard and Visa, but we do not accept American Express. If you are experiencing a problem paying by card, it may be worth checking the card number you have entered, or that the address in your customer record is the correct billing address for the card that you are using.  

In some cases, you may be diverted to your own bank or card issuer to obtain payment validation from them. This will usually come to you as a code in a text or email. After you have entered it, you should be redirected to the St Martin’s website for confirmation that payment was successful and your booking has been completed. If you do not receive a code or authentication by other means, it may be worth checking the contact information your bank or card issuer has for you. 

If you continue to experience problems in booking your tickets, please telephone the box office on 020 7766 1100 (+44 20 7766 1100 for international callers) Monday to Saturday between 11am and 5pm. 

Why haven’t received my tickets? 

Following a successful ticket booking you should receive two emails from The first is a confirmation of your order containing the basic details of your booking; the second will have your e-tickets attached as a PDF document with separate pages for each individual ticket. To reduce paper waste, we encourage customers to download and display the ticket(s) on a mobile device.

If you have not received your e-ticket(s), it may be worth checking the junk or trash folder of your email account. If you cannot find your confirmation email or your e-tickets anywhere, please contact the box office at 

Why am I unable to log-in on the website? 

In order to book tickets online you must have or create a customer account. You can either register or login to a pre-existing account before going on to make a booking; alternatively, you will be prompted to do so during the booking process itself. 

If you wish to register a new customer account, you can do so on this page and will be prompted to enter your email address and create a password. 

If you are having difficulty in logging-in to a pre-existing account, please check that you are using the same email and password details you have previously used, and that you have not made any typing errors. 

If you have forgotten your password, you can reset it on this page by entering your email address and requesting a password link email, which will then be sent to you immediately and will contain a time-sensitive link that will expire after 12 hours. 

If you have not logged-in, you will be prompted to enter your email address before you reach the checkout. New customers will then be asked for further information to register; returning customers will be asked for their password to complete their login. At this point you also have the option of logging-in using a passwordless link (“send me a link to login”). This will be emailed to you but will expire after just 10 minutes. 

Does St Martin’s still do Lunchtime Concerts? 

Yes! Our Lunchtime Concerts take place on Fridays at 1pm in the church, with tickets priced at £10 (concessions are available). We also offer tickets for these concerts with a lunch of Fish and Chips or Soup and a Sandwich for an all-in price of £20 per person: a perfect treat to start the weekend!

In addition to Church concerts, we have live music in the Crypt featuring jazz and blues, folk, swing, country and songs from musical theatre. For Crypt Lates and other Crypt events, please enter via the Pavilion Entrance (the glass structure to the left of the Church) and take the lift or stairs down to the lower level. Doors usually open at 7pm with the bar and food available, and the performance starting at 8pm.
