Individual Memberships

'None of our repertoire would be able to take to the stage in the way it does without your support. I value it enormously, and I'm very grateful.'
Nicholas Hytner, Director of the National Theatre

Last year, our individual supporters raised over £3.5million. Without such generous support the National Theatre could not continue to produce such diverse theatre, develop bold new writing or reach out to people of all ages through innovative learning and engagement initiatives. By participating in one of the NT’s annual membership programmes, you join thousands of others who demonstrate their faith in our work through their vital contributions. To show our thanks, you will have access to a range of exciting benefits that aim to bring you even closer to our work.

Please visit Advance Membership for more information on National Theatre membership from £15. National Theatre Memberships are for individuals rather than organisations, schools or colleges. If you wish to book for a group of 8 or more, please see the information on the National's group booking facility or please join our Learning Department’s mailing list to receive the latest season information for school bookings.
