Do you limit the amount of tickets Members can purchase during Priority Booking and Public Booking?
You can buy up to seven tickets for a single performance online or via the Box Office. If you are organising a group trip and wish to buy more than seven tickets, then you can benefit from group ticket discounts, and access Priority Booking by joining as a Group Member. Please note that group tickets cannot be purchased online. You can buy tickets for multiple performances during Priority and Public Booking.

Can I upgrade my Membership?
If you are a Member and wish to become a Supporter to access tickets earlier, please contact Michele.Cottiss@rsc.org.uk or telephone 01789 272283. If you are an Associate Member and wish to become a Full Member, we can only upgrade your Membership in the month of renewal, so if you wish to upgrade you will need to buy a new Membership, either online or by calling the Membership Office.

Why do you charge more for Overseas Membership?
It costs the RSC more to service Members outside of the UK. As a Member you receive at least four mailings per year, and the extra cost is to cover the additional postage costs for the RSC.

When will I receive my Members' joining pack?
On joining your pack will be with you within seven working days (if you are an Overseas Member please allow a few extra days for delivery).
