When can I purchase tickets or subscriptions?
All subscriptions and SAL Presents tickets in our 2023/24 Season go on sale online at 10 a.m. on June 13, 2023. Single tickets and digital passes will go on sale on July 11, 2023 at 10 a.m.
How can I purchase tickets? What payment methods are accepted?
- Online at lectures.org
- By phone at 206.621.2230 x10
- At the Box Office on the night of the event, beginning at 6 p.m. (if tickets are still available and the event is happening in-person).
We accept all major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover), cash, and checks.
Do in-person tickets come with digital access?
In-person tickets do not include digital access. However, we offer digital access for all of our events, and if your circumstances change, you may be able to get an exchange if there is availability. You may also purchase digital passes separately if you would like both kinds of access.
Why does my in-person ticket not come with a digital pass?
In-person tickets no longer include digital access because SAL is required to charge state sales tax for online digital passes; selling those tickets separately allows us to do so, and allows us to continue to provide access to SAL events for our online community.
If you would like to also have a digital viewing option alongside your in-person ticket, it will need to be purchased separately. Or, if your circumstances have changed and you need to exchange your in-person ticket for a digital pass, SAL kindly asks that you please contact the SAL Box Office at [email protected] or at 206.621.2230 x10 before 12 noon on the day of your event.

Can you explain your fee structure?
There is a $5 handling fee per ticket (with the exception of $10 tickets, which have a $2 handling fee per ticket).
We waive handling fees for our subscribers.
Benaroya Hall events incur a $5 facility fee per ticket.
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 sales, senior, or other discounts?
SAL offers a Pay What You Can Subscription to each series and $10 minimum Pay What You Can single tickets to every event to help make our tickets more accessible to all.
For teens, day-of tickets are also available for free through TeenTix (and a companion ticket for an adult is also free) by emailing the box office at [email protected]. Please have your TeenTix membership handy.
