We are excited to welcome everyone back to the International Festival in 2021. We are carefully considering models that put the health and safety of our audiences, supporters, and artists first. We have decided to put a temporary hold on accepting new members as we consider membership benefits.

Thank you to all our members that have renewed their support this year. We will be in touch soon to confirm your membership benefits in 2021. In the meantime we are pleased to share with you dates for your priority booking, which are as follows: 

Ambassador Members From 10am on Wednesday 2 June
Patron & Patron Plus Members From 10am on Thursday 3 June
Friend & Friend Plus Members From 10am on Friday 4 June

Priority booking will close on Wednesday 9 June and booking will open to everyone at 10am on Friday 11 June. Additional priority booking details to follow.

Your support remains crucial in 2021. Through your membership, you play a part in our road to recovery, helping to safeguard the future of the International Festival and support our year-round work with communities, schools and young people and contributing to the cultural and social life of Edinburgh and Scotland.
