Your involvement with the Friends of the KH&WG:

  • Provides valuable income to promote and accelerate the ongoing restoration and improvements to the KH&WG.

Becoming a Friend of the KH&WG involves an annual subscription of £18. The subscription cannot be Gift Aided because you gain access to a range of benefits for the majority of performances in the King’s Hall and Winter Garden, which are currently as follows:

  • ‘Early Bird’ priority booking for events promoted by the Friends of KH&WG, plus a 10% discount on two tickets per membership. click here for full booking details.
  • Entitles you to an ‘Early Bird’ discount of 10% for seats in the stalls at Wicked Lady – Ilkley Theatre Shows in the King’s Hall. The ‘Early Bird’ discount applies to two tickets per membership and the booking period will cease 6 weeks prior to the date of the production. Friends may buy as many additional tickets as they wish, without the discount, during the ‘Early Bird’ priority booking period. Friends must apply by email to and your application must include your email address and your Friends current membership number.
  • Entitles you to a £2.50 per ticket discount on up to two tickets per membership for Bradford Theatres own productions held in the King’s Hall and/or Winter Garden. If booking in person please show your current Friends membership card. If you book by telephone, please quote your current membership number.

To this subscription you may, if you wish, add a Patron’s donation (a minimum of £10 is suggested) which should preferably be Gift Aided to gain maximum benefit for the Friends of the KH&WG.

When you join the Friends, or renew your annual subscription, you will receive a gift voucher from our Restaurant Partner, Le Bistrot Pierre. This entitles you to 10% off their evening a la carte menu (Sunday to Thursday).
