Friends FAQs

To become a Friend, you can sign up on our website, visit us at the Black Swan Ticketing Office, or call our Ticketing Team.

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.

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!

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.
