Individual Membership

We would be delighted to welcome you as a member of Garsington Opera. It is only with the support of our members that we can achieve the artistic quality that you see on our stage. Members are offered priority booking to secure tickets on the dates of their choice.

We are so grateful to our members whose support enables us to achieve the artistic quality of our productions and our work in the local community.

Membership donations not only support our productions but also our outreach work in the community, building friendships and changing lives through involvement in the arts.

For this year only we are inviting new members to join without the need to join our waiting list, in celebration of the opening of our new Arts Hub in 2023. The waiting list will be reinstated for the 2024 opera festival.
