    Gift Membership

    Gift Membershop package

    Give a whole year of possibilities with a Southbank Centre Membership

    Give them an experience too big to wrap with Southbank Centre Membership: presale tickets, free entry to the Hayward Gallery and a Members’ Cafe-Bar.

    Unfortunately, due to the current situation we are unable to offer Gift Memberships for sale.

    Your loved one will get the first chance to book for all of our events – that means go-down-in-history gigs, spine-tingling concerts and blockbuster talks from the world’s greatest thinkers. 

    They’ll also get unlimited free entry to eye-popping exhibitions at the Hayward Gallery and, as soon as we reopen, access to the Members’ Cafe-Bar on the top floor of the Royal Festival Hall, with knockout views of London.
