Be a part of this unique company by joining our Friends. 


At Gothic Opera we stage rarely-heard operas to a very high standard. We are an open-minded, ambitious and experimental company. We endeavour to include world or UK premieres in much of our programming, from newly-discovered nineteenth century works to new commissions. We perform in small and unintimidating venues, oozing with gothic atmosphere.


Our season of gothic-inspired concerts and operas is made possible by the support of our Friends and patrons, who receive priority booking and access to special events. Our Shelley Friends and Walpole Friends are also invited to attend special rehearsals.


Other benefits of joining our Friends include:


  • helping to strengthen the company’s development as we grow

  • nurturing the careers of singers and other artists and music professionals

  • supporting Gothic Opera's work bringing opera to a wider audience.

We offer four levels of membership:

  • Radcliffe Friends: £50 - £150 per year
    Joining the Radcliffe Friends entitles you to priority booking for our operas and concerts, as well as a free drink per event. You will also be invited to special Friends events.

  • Stoker Friends: £151 - £250 per year 
    As a Stoker Friend, you will benefit from priority booking, a 10% discount on a pair of tickets per event, and a free drink at our performances. You'll be invited to attend special Friends events.

  • Shelley Friends: £251 - £500 per year
    Members of the Shelley Friends receive a free ticket allowance of one pair per year to selected events, as well as priority booking and a free drink. You will also be invited to attend Friends events and invite-only rehearsals.

  • Walpole Friends: over £500 per year
    The Walpole Friends receive priority booking, a free drink at our performances, and a free ticket allowance of two pairs per year to selected events. You will also receive invitations to Friends-only events and be invited to watch special rehearsals.

Thank you very much for your support!
