How much are tickets?
Tickets for all performances in Stratford-upon-Avon are priced from £16. Full ticket price information can be found in the Season Guide which you will receive with your Membership Pack.

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?
We can only upgrade your Membership during the month of renewal. If you are an Associate Member and wish to become a Full Member to access tickets earlier, 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?
Your pack will be with you within seven working days of joining (if you are an Overseas Member please allow a few extra days for delivery).
