Friends of the Festival

There are many ways to support the Festival and becoming a Friend is just one. Benefits include, access to tickets before anyone else, complimentary and discounted tickets, as well as invitations to exclusive launches and theatre outings year-round.

Our Friends are the backbone of the Festival, this support underpins every aspect of the work we do. We have a rich history, spanning 61 years and in the future we want to see more audiences attending theatre and participating in culture, and more artists creating bold new work that challenges and inspires. We couldn't do it without our Friends.


Directors Circle member and long-time Friend of the Festival, Andrew Parkes has shared his own personal selection of memories of the Festival which he has attended since 1959. You can read  here.
