2.1 After placing an order, You will receive a confirmation email from us acknowledging that we have received your order. The contract between us will be formed when we send you an acknowledgement email or letter which confirms our Acceptance of Your offer to purchase a Membership.



3.1 As a member You are entitled to the Benefits listed on the relevant page of our website, subject to availability of the Benefits and these terms. The Donmar reserves the right to make changes to these terms including to the Membership Benefits. We may make minor changes to reflect any changes in relevant laws or to implement adjustments that will have no significant effect on Your Membership Benefits.

3.2 Membership does not guarantee access to tickets for productions at the Donmar, or our West End Transfers, and ticket limits may apply. Priority booking applies to events selected by the Donmar in its sole discretion.

3.3 Membership Benefits are for the personal use of the Member(s) only. Benefits, including priority booking, late access to house tickets, events and invitations are non-transferable and non-refundable. If the information available to us suggests that You have used Your Membership Benefits for commercial gain (e.g. reselling tickets purchased during priority booking periods) we may, at the Donmar’s complete discretion, cancel Your Membership without notice or refund.

3.4 Invitations to member events are intended for the invitee (Membership holder) and a guest(s) only as stipulated. For Supporters’ Evenings, Patrons can purchase two additional tickets, additional to the allocation as listed in their Benefits. For Bronze and Silver Patrons, the maximum number of tickets is four. For Gold and Platinum Patrons, the maximum number of tickets is six. These limits may be amended on individual basis at the Donmar’s discretion.

3.5 All Membership Benefits must be redeemed during the Membership period and cannot be applied following the expiration of the Membership retrospectively unless specifically granted by the Donmar at our discretion.

3. 6 All Memberships are valid immediately for 12 months from the date of purchase (in the case of a Gift Membership, the date of delivery) or renewal, subject to any longer period as specifically granted by the Donmar at our discretion.

3.7 You may upgrade Your Membership at any point during the duration of Your existing Membership. You may cancel Your Membership at any time, at which point the existing Membership will end on the expiry date, 12 months from the date of purchase, unless specified otherwise for Memberships purchased on a monthly, quarterly or bi-annual basis. The process of both upgrading and cancelling Memberships is managed at the discretion of the Donmar, in accordance with our refunds policy as referenced in 5.1. 

3.8 You will need to click the box marked "Accept" in the course of Your purchase of Membership to confirm Your acceptance of these terms. If You don't accept these terms, You will not be able to purchase a Membership from our website.

3.9 We reserve the right to, if necessary, revoke Membership without refund if an individual breaks the terms of Membership, ticket sales or entry, or behaves in a threatening, abusive or otherwise inappropriate manner towards any person at the Donmar, damages or threatens to damage any property of the Donmar or other venue of a Donmar Warehouse event, or acts in a manner which – in the Donmar’s sole opinion – brings the Theatre into disrepute.

5.7 You can cancel a Continuous Payment Authority any time by logging into Your Donmar account and unticking the ‘auto-renew’ box which appears next to Your active Membership. Payment will be taken 2 days before Your Membership is due to expire, and You will receive an email notification of this upcoming payment 10 days before this payment will be taken (12 days before the Membership expiry date). You can cancel Your automatic renewal by emailing before the payment collection date. We won’t retrospectively refund the Membership fee once the Membership has automatically renewed.
