OV Thrive FAQs
Some of the most commonly asked questions are answered below.
OV TOGETHER Memberships purchased by one-off payments online or over the phone are active immediately. Memberships purchased online by Direct Debit may take up to three working days to be activated. Memberships purchased by paper form and sent by post will take up to seven working days after receipt to be activated.
A confirmation email will be sent to let you know your Membership has been activated and at this point you can start using your benefits. If you choose to renew before your Membership expiry date, your next year’s Membership will only begin once your current Membership has expired.
In order to be more eco-friendly, we no longer send Membership cards however you will be able to start using your benefits straight away.
Complimentary tickets can only be booked by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. To book and pay for tickets during your priority booking period always remember to log in to your account before picking up tickets. You can do this by clicking the person icon in the top right corner of your screen. You will then be recognised as a Member and won’t be charged any booking fees. If you have any issues logging in or accessing your benefits online, please call the OV Together line on 020 7981 0982 .
The Old Vic reserves the right to limit the number of tickets available for purchase during priority booking on a production by production basis. Individual Members can make a group booking for any one performance of up to nine tickets at a time. Should you need more than nine tickets please call our Box Office (0344 871 7628) for availability for larger group bookings. Please check with our dedicated booking line for full details on ticket restrictions.
