Audience members, male & female, looking at something in the distance - some in focus, some are out of focus

As a Friend, you are playing a central role in supporting the arts while enjoying wonderful and exclusive benefits.

Join a community of music lovers who are helping shape the present and future of the National Concert Hall. There are many benefits to becoming a Friend of the National Concert Hall. By supporting our work, you are not only contributing to the arts in an important way, you are also part of a society that values music and its positive impacts on all our lives.  Your support empowers us to bring music to people and communities in need and to whom it brings great benefit, including many who do not have ready access to music. 

Thank you for all of your continued support of the NCH, which allows us to in turn support the arts, audiences and artists.

Membership Benefits

Priority booking, free and discounted tickets, free lectures and invitations to special events at the NCH are just some of the great benefits Friends and Patrons of the Hall receive. You are also part of a unique community that has its own programme of tours and events throughout the year. With your free and exclusive subscription to Fanfare, our member’s exclusive publication, you will always be the first to know what is coming up. Above all, you are making a meaningful and essential contribution to the work of the Hall
