Become A Festival Friend

Festival Friends are individuals who support the Festival by paying a subscription for early access to tickets and other benefits. Starting at only £15, there are three tiers of Friend Membership – Good Friends, Best Friends and Lifelong Friends - each of which comes with its own exciting package of benefits.

Our Friends 2019 subscriptions have now closed. 2020 subscriptions and renewals will open towards the end of 2019. We will write to 2019 Friends later in the year to remind you of your renewal.

Other Terms and Conditions

Friends memberships are only open to individuals and not organisations, and are non-transferrable. If you are a business and would like to support the Festival, please visit our corporate sponsors page.

* Occasionally, some shows will be excluded from the multi-buy discount offer due to the arrangement with the artist. Our website will highlight any exclusions. Please note that the discount can only be applied to a single box office transaction and a limit of 4 tickets per show per Friend is applied. The £1.50 booking fee per ticket will still apply.

** We will contact our Friends each year to ask if you would like to renew your membership. If you do not renew within a 2-year period, we will remove your details from our Friends mailing list. Lifetime members will remain on our mailing list unless you request otherwise. Please scroll down to view our Privacy Policy.
