What is a Pre-sale?

A pre-sale is an opportunity to buy tickets ahead of them going on sale to the general public.

Previous Forest Live customers and Forestry England Members who have opted in to receive marketing emails will be sent an email when a pre-sale is available, giving the chance to buy tickets one day before general sales start.   

Friends of Westonbirt will also receive a similar email directly from their Friends organisation, subject to email opt-in. 

Pre-sale tickets can be purchased online only via the special link provided in the notifying email, they cannot be purchased from the standard Forestry England ticketing page or by telephone. Customers with accessibility needs can read our Access Statement for further information or call us on 0300 068 0400.

Check in advance that you can log in to your account

When you previously bought your Membership or tickets from us, a customer account was created for you on our website.

To speed up your purchase we strongly recommend to check that you can log in to your account in advance of tickets going on sale and if necessary reset your password.

If you are a Friend of Westonbirt member and have not purchased from us before you may need to create a new account.
