Barbican Patrons champion international programming, bold commissions and opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to access world-class arts for free.

Our Patrons are a group of creative and adventurous people, who champion us, test their own artistic boundaries, and support our work financially.  We get to know your interests, and help you enjoy a rich and close relationship with the Barbican in grateful recognition for your support. 

To help you get the most from our world-class programme we: 

  • Offer priority booking for our programme and access to tickets for sold out performances.
  • Host special events where you can engage with our artistic teams and artists. 
  • Dedicated contact in the Development Office and access to the Patrons Box Office phone line.
  • Acknowledge your support across the Centre and in our publications.
