When can I purchase subscriptions/tickets?
Subscriptions go on sale when the next season is announced, typically at the last event of the current season. Single ticket sales follow in a couple of months and remain on sale throughout the season. Check Subscriptions & Tickets page for the most up-to-date information.
Where and how can I purchase subscriptions/tickets?
- Online at lectures.org
- By phone at 206.621.2230 x10
- At the Box Office on the night of the event beginning at 6pm if tickets are still available
Can I avoid the $5 handling fee?
We waive the handling fee on series subscriptions. The fee is also waived on additional ticket orders for subscribers throughout the season. All other orders include a $5 per-order handling fee. There is no fee for tickets purchased at the Box Office the night of the event.
What payment methods are accepted?
We accept all major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover), cash, and checks.
Can I return or exchange my tickets?
Tickets and subscriptions are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged; all sales are final.
I can’t use my tickets, what can I do?
Is there a friend or family member who would be able to attend in your place? You may give the ticket to whomever you’d like. If you cannot find anyone to use the ticket, you can donate it back to SAL. We will send a “receipt of charitable donation” form indicating a donation in the amount of the value of the ticket. Please call the Box Office at 206.621.2230 x10 or email email@example.com for details.
I lost my tickets, what can I do?
Call the Box Office at 206.621.2230 x10, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or go to the Box Office when you arrive at the event, and staff will be able to assist you.
When will my tickets be mailed?
Typically, we start mailing series subscription tickets in late summer. Single tickets ordered throughout the season will be mailed within two weeks of ordering. We need 10 business days before an event to mail tickets. Any orders received after that time will be held at Will Call. The Box Office opens at 6pm the night of the event.
Can I reserve tickets and pay for them later?
You can place an order and then send payment to us, but tickets are not guaranteed until payment has been received for your order.
What does “general admission” mean?
General admission means that seating is first-come, first-serve, within the section listed on the ticket.
Does SAL offer student, group, senior, or military discounts?
We offer $10 Student/Under 25 tickets for all public SAL events. Valid identification is required for entry into the event.
SAL does not offer a senior discount.
A group discount of 15% is available for orders of five or more subscriptions or tickets at the same seating level for any series or event (excluding student levels). Discounts on single tickets will be automatically applied.
If you are facing economic hardship and cannot afford tickets to SAL events, we encourage you to check out our Community Access Tickets program.
I didn’t receive an email confirming my web order.
If you did not receive an order confirmation email, we likely did not receive your order. Please contact the Box Office at email@example.com or 206.621.2230 x10 to check on your order status.
