Let's Be Friends

The All-New Friends of the Grand Opera House Membership Scheme

It isn’t just the Grand Opera House that’s having a makeover, the hugely popular Friends scheme has also been updated, offering you even more ways to save money and take advantage of exclusive priority booking, securing the best seats before everyone else! No matter what the occasion, a membership would be an amazing gift for anyone with a passion for live theatre.

Everyone can benefit from joining the new Friends scheme. If you want to hear about new shows and book tickets up to 48 hours before they go on general sale, then the free to join Bronze tier is for you. Simply sign up by email to register.

To inspire the next generation of theatre goers, students and young professionals can also join our Under 26 tier for free, with the chance to buy tickets for just £10 on selected shows, or half-price standby tickets for all shows from 6pm on the day of the performance (proof of age may be required when joining. Only available for 16-26 year old 1 ticket per customer).

If you come to see two or more shows a year, then the Silver tier will definitely save you money and is the ideal gift for Christmas, birthdays and all other celebrations. For an annual fee of just £40 you can take advantage of opening night and weekday matinee offers (typically 2-for-1 or 10% discount), as well as free cloakroom facilities and an exclusive,  one-week advance booking period.

Or if you come to the Theatre more regularly, the Gold tier is the one to choose. For a £60 annual fee you receive the same benefits as the Silver tier, plus a 10% discount on performances other than opening nights and weekday matinees, no booking fee, and 10% off drinks at the bar. Another unique and thoughtful gift idea too!
