Priority booking runs from Wednesday 26 February to Sunday 1 March (12 noon). In order to take part in priority booking, you must have a valid Friend, Patron or Omega Group membership. You must have renewed (if your membership had expired) or purchased your Charleston membership by Sunday 23 February (midnight) in order to qualify for priority booking.

Members will receive a Charleston Festival 2020 programme and priority booking form in the post. The festival programme and priority booking forms can also be downloaded by clicking on the links below.
