Handel Messiah

When King George II first heard Handel’s Messiah, he leapt to his feet in excitement – and from Ev’ry Valley to the Hallelujah chorus itself, this is quite simply some of the most uplifting music ever written. A real highlight of Christmas with RNS.

This performance will be BSL interpreted.

The BSL signer will be positioned at the front of the stage on stage right (East side of the hall).

We are holding a selection of seats in front of this area to offer the best view for BSL users. However, if you would prefer to sit elsewhere, we believe you will have a clear view of the signer from anywhere in the hall, with the exception of the sides of Levels 2 and 3.

Please note that the held seats will be released for general sale at 5pm on Friday 30th November. You will still be able to book any available seats in this area after this date, but they will no longer be reserved solely for BSL users.

To book the held seats, please book in person, call our Ticket Office on 0191 443 4661, dial 18001 0191 443 4661 from your textphone, or use the Next Generation Text Service app. To find out more about calling us from your textphone click here. For help with the NGT app, click here.
