3 You can buy a maximum of two discounted tickets per event: one for you and one for a friend also aged 14—25. If you want to come as a group, get your friends to become Young Barbican members too!
If your discount isn't applying to an eligible event, it's likely that there are no more Young Barbican tickets available.
1. Young Barbican is open to everyone aged 14-25 years. By registering for the scheme you promise that you are aged 14-25, and that any tickets discounted as part of Young Barbican are just for you, plus one friend in the same age group (if you want to bring one). Once you're 26 your membership will automatically expire. Please note, this does not apply to students at Guildhall School of Music & Drama, where your membership will last until you have graduated.
2. As a Young Barbican member, you can buy a maximum of two discounted tickets per event one for you and one for a friend also aged 14-25. If you want to come as a group, get your friends to become Young Barbican members too.
3. Young Barbican tickets are limited in number and subject to availability. When they’re gone, they’re gone. Book early to avoid disappointment.
4. Unfortunately, we can’t offer a Young Barbican discount for every event at the Barbican, although we’ll try our best. All the events where the discount applies are listed on our website.
5. Sometimes we’ll need to take discounted tickets off sale without notice (see point 3 above).
6. It’s best to book Young Barbican tickets online but you can also book by telephone or in person, unless we let you know otherwise.
7. Tickets are not transferable. Please don't sell your tickets on. You’ll need to bring along some form of ID with your age or date of birth on it if collecting your tickets at the Centre, along with the credit/debit card you used to book. If you booked an extra ticket for a friend through Young Barbican, they will also need to prove they are 14-25 with a show of ID.
If you can’t prove your age when you come along to collect your Young Barbican tickets, we will have to refund your booking. If it happens more than once, it may be that your membership is cancelled.
8. If you want to cancel your Membership, use our contact form.
