Under 30s membership

Are you 16 to 29 years old? Join as an Under 30s member for free and take advantage of £30 tickets to the Festival.

We want as many people as possible to experience the thrill of an opera performance at Glyndebourne.

For more than a decade, those aged under 30 have had access to heavily subsidised tickets, thanks to generous funding from our New Generation Programme.
