Join as a Patron

Join as a Patron of Southbank Centre to support us in our mission to be the world’s most-exciting festival site, celebrating the power of the imagination.

Help us achieve our mission

Our Patrons are our closest friends, whose support enables us to programme confidently into the future. Patrons are instrumental in helping us bring some of the world’s most exciting artists to Southbank Centre, across all art forms. They also support us in our central mission: to be the world’s most-exciting permanent festival site, celebrating the power of art and creativity to inspire and effect change.

Patrons' groups 

Choose either to support a specific area of our programme that you’re passionate about, or one of our two existing Patrons’ groups – the Classical Music Group and the Hayward Gallery Curatorial Salon. Patrons enjoy a bespoke series of events and a personal relationship with Southbank Centre.

Get behind the scenes at Southbank Centre

By becoming a Patron, you’ll be able to fully explore the process of creating world-class art. Patrons get unique access to invited artists, musicians, performers, curators and conductors, as well as to Southbank Centre’s Artistic Team. 

Our Patrons receive priority booking, exclusive access to tickets, and invites to bespoke events. A staff member from our Development team is also always on hand to personally arrange entertaining opportunities for you and your guests. 

How your support helps us

We passionately believe that the arts have the ability to transform lives, and that they must be available to everyone. Patrons support us in this mission, helping us to bring world-class artists to perform at Southbank Centre venues, to continuously improve our facilities, and to provide a programme of participatory activities, with a large number (currently 50%) of free events.
