Friends Benefits

Each season we offer a range of benefits at each membership level ensuring our Friends can enjoy all that Wigmore Hall has to offer. Due to the current circumstances, it will only be possible for us to fulfil all the benefits listed below when normal services resume.

This includes Priority Booking which has been replaced by a series of ticket ballots to ensure that when audiences are permitted at the Hall, Friends will continue to have priority access to tickets. Please note however, that it is not possible for us to process ballot ticket requests in order of membership level, as we would in normal Priority Booking circumstances.

We look forward to offering these benefits again in full once normal operations resume, and in the meantime, don’t forget that the voucher you purchase will be valid for activation for a full six months.
