Frequently asked questions

To become a Friend, you can sign up on our website, visit us at the Black Swan Ticketing Office, or call our Ticketing Team. Friends Membership costs just $50 which will give you 12 months of benefits from the date of purchase. If you are booking online, simply add a Friends Membership to your cart and proceed to check out. You will start receiving your discount immediately.

You can become a Subscriber by selecting either the 3-4, or 5-6 multi-play package options and then simply choose the productions you want to see. To receive your discounts, all your tickets must be purchased in the same transaction.

Once you have become a Friend, all you have to do is log into your account on the Black Swan website and the Friends discount will automatically be applied to your purchase. If you have already selected your tickets, then the discount will be applied as soon as you enter your account details during checkout.

Discounts apply only to Adult, Concession and Student ticket prices.

If you wish to buy single tickets for remaining 2023 shows, please call our Ticketing Team, who will apply your Friends discount for you.

Your Friends card will usually be posted out to you within 2 weeks of signing up – but you will receive an email confirming that you can access all the benefits immediately. In busy times, such as Season Launch, your Friends card may take a little longer to arrive with your tickets, if you have purchased a subscription.

Your Friends benefits begin immediately upon purchase and last for 12 months. This includes any discounts, priority booking and access to exclusive events and offers. You will be sent a renewal reminder when you are reaching the end of the 12 months.

Being a Friend and being a Subscriber are two different things.

As a Subscriber, you receive a discount based on the number of productions you buy tickets for. Multi-play packages of 3-4 shows receive 10% off tickets and multi-play packages of 5-6 shows receive 15% off tickets. We know that plans sometimes change, so we do allow free ticket exchanges for Subscribers. You do not receive any additional benefits as a Subscriber and tickets must be purchased in the same transaction.

As a Friend, you will enjoy a host of benefits, including priority booking, free exchanges and a discount of 5% off all single tickets purchased. If you choose to purchase a multi-play package, then you will receive an additional 5% off on top of the package discount – meaning you could be saving up to 20% off the standard ticket price! As a Friend, your benefits will include: invitations to exclusive Friends events, being the first to hear exciting news from Black Swan and a Friends Card that will be enable you to benefit from amazing discounts and special offers from our partners.

Friends will have first priority to book multi-play packages, followed by Subscribers. Single tickets for 2024 shows will go on sale approximately three months prior to the opening night of each production.

Friends will be granted an additional one-week priority booking period for single ticket purchases, allowing them to make the most of their additional single ticket discount.

Current 2023 Members will only be able to apply their benefits to the remaining 2023 shows. If you wish to receive benefits for our 2024 Season, you must become a Black Swan Friend or a Subscriber.

Our Subscribers scheme will remain, with discounts applied depending on the number of plays purchased in a multi-play package. Subscribers will receive 10% off multi-play packages of 3-4 plays, and 15% off multi-play packages of 5-6 plays.
