Priority Membership

£80 − £199 per year
(£6.70 per month by Direct Debit)
Through their donations from £80, Priority Members make a huge difference to the work that goes on at the National Theatre.

Priority Members receive the following benefits: 

  • Priority booking ahead of Advance Members and the general public
  • Save 50% on all NT Platforms – talks and discussions that give you a special insight into our productions and the arts in general
  • Receive three copies a year of the National Theatre Magazine
  • Receive season brochures and be the first to find out what's happening

Last year the NT's Priority Members raised over £1million for the National. By becoming a Priority Member today, you will join the thousands of others who demonstrate their passion for the National Theatre's work through their membership donations.
