Enjoy exclusive benefits and be part of something extraordinary.

Please note, our Friends membership scheme is currently suspended

If you currently have a Friends’ membership with us:

  • Your Friends’ membership has been frozen, backdated to 17 March.
  • When we are in a position to offer your full benefits, we will restart your Friends’ membership. We will notify you when this happens. At that time, your Friends’ membership will be extended with whatever time you had left on your membership on 17 March. If you have renewed automatically since 17 March, you will be given a full 12 months.
  • If you are a lifetime member, your Friends’ membership will simply resume.
  • You can visit Shakespeare’s Birthplace. However, we do require you to book online to purchase a ticket in advance. This is because, due to social distancing rules, we have to limit numbers of entries and can only sell tickets booked in advanced for specific timed slots.
  • You can use the Birthplace shop, and we will honour your usual 10% discount; please display your Friends’ membership card.

Your support is more important to us than ever and we are so grateful for your patience at this difficult time. If you have any queries, please contact us at [email protected]
