What is U26 Membership?

U26 Membership is for anyone aged 14 – 25 who is interested in great theatre, great entertainment and, of course, great discounts. The U26 scheme is designed to encourage people age 14 – 25 to come to the theatre independently. This means the young person needs to create an account and book themselves. Tickets cannot be purchased by someone who is not a member.

Exeter Northcott Theatre has an exciting, jam-packed programme. From classic theatre to cabarets, big name comedy stars to contemporary dance, nationally touring operas to live music gigs. We host all types of entertainment, including emerging artists, student productions and nationally touring shows. So, no matter what sort of entertainment you’re into, we’ve got something for you.

Join U26 Membership for FREE and get:

  • Massive discounts on theatre tickets, including £5 and £10 tickets on selected shows
  • Keep up to date with the latest deals and discounts with the U26 monthly e-newsletter

Sounds great! How do I join?
