Changes to our Memberships


Following feedback from a recent survey of our Members we have made some changes to our Membership schemes to simplify our offer, meaning less time on administration and more time on delivering your Membership at the highest level.

As of April 2019 we are combining our Friends and Premium Friends levels, as well as our Associates and Premium Associates levels. The new Membership tiers are as follow:

  • Friends (£65 or £60 on Direct Debit)
    • Dedicated Friends booking line
    • Priority booking for main stage productions, Q&As and talks
    • Season announcements and email updates
    • No booking fees when purchasing tickets over the phone and online


  • Associates (£500) As above, plus:
    • Priority booking ahead of Friends
    • Acknowledgment in our programmes and online
    • A complimentary Annual Associates Evening with pre-show drinks reception

What does this mean for current Friends and Associates?

Your current Membership will remain active until your expiry date. At which point we will be back in touch with a reminder of these changes and we hope that you will choose to continue to support The Old Vic by renewing at the new level.

As a charity with no regular subsidy we rely on the support of Members to stage world class theatre and stay committed to education and outreach projects – learn more here.

Thank you for helping to make this possible and for your support and patience as we undertake these changes.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us at or on 020 7981 0983.
