Friends & Benefactors are valued members of the English National Ballet family and enjoy a range of rewarding experiences that bring them closer to the artistic process.

Joining as a Friend or Benefactor is a brilliant way to support English National Ballet, enabling us to achieve Artistic Director Tamara Rojo’s bold vision for the Company and ensure that future generations are able to enjoy exciting and award-winning ballet performances.

You’ll be the first to hear our year-round programme of stunning performances and events, and get behind-the-scenes access, including the opportunity to attend working stage rehearsals.

Since it’s Christmas, for every membership purchased in December, we’ll also include a free limited-edition poster, holographic notebook and a pair of tickets to our Company Class at the London Coliseum on 12 January.
