Join our Leading Friends

Play a leading role in the King’s Theatre redevelopment

Do you want to join us on our journey as we redevelop the King’s Theatre? Become a Leading Friend by adding £42 to your normal membership and help us to breathe new life into the King’s.

By doubling the cost of your Friends membership with a donation to the King’s, you will join our Leading Friends who enjoy all the same benefits as a normal Friend plus exclusive updates about the redevelopment and an invitation to an annual King’s Theatre event. Most importantly, your donation of £42 goes directly towards the King’s redevelopment, ensuring its future for generations to come.

To become a Leading Friend, add a normal Friends membership to your basket and you will automatically be asked if you’d like to upgrade your membership to a Leading Friend. If you already have a Friends membership and would like to upgrade, contact our Box Office on 0131 529 6002.
