Our Friends are the core of the Philharmonia family.  While we cannot meet in person, we are sharing an exclusive online Friends programme including Green Rooms, soirées and behind-the-scenes news. Friends also enjoy early access and special ticket prices for our Live from Royal Festival Hall series. We’re looking forward to welcoming our members back to live concerts as soon as we can.

Friends make a difference; while we cannot gather in concert halls, Philharmonia Friends have supported the Orchestra to keep playing, continuing to create thrilling experiences in music for our audiences round the world. Thanks for our Friends and supporters, the Philharmonia Sessions digital concerts are free, and for everyone.

Membership starts from as little as £5 per month. Here are just some of the ways in which you will become closer to the Philharmonia as a Friend:

  • Monthly e-newsletters featuring behind-the-scenes news and interviews
  • Priority access and special ticket prices for livestreamed concerts
  • Invitations to exclusive online events, including soirees, post-concert Green Rooms and player Q&As

The full list of published membership benefits will return when concerts with live audiences resume; sadly we cannot offer the Friends Bar and Open Rehearsals under current circumstances.

Make your membership go further by considering our Overture, Concerto and Symphony level memberships, and enjoy a closer relationship with the Philharmonia.
