Associate Membership

Join the Glyndebourne family

Associate Members secure a place on the waiting list for lifelong Festival Society Membership.

Whilst on the waiting list Associate Members receive second priority in the Festival ticket ballot ahead of public booking, during which time they may apply for up to 24 tickets across the Festival.

Associate Members also have access to Glyndebourne’s personal booking service and will be sent advance information and newsletters throughout the year.

There is a joining fee of £500 and an annual subscription due in October of each year which is currently £75 by Direct Debit.

How to register your interest in Associate Membership

Associate Membership for Festival 2017 is currently fully subscribed. We anticipate a limited number of Memberships will become available for Festival 2018.

On the last night of Festival 2017 we will contact those who have registered their interest to provide them with priority access to Festival 2018 Associate Memberships.
