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?

The Time Machine artwork. White background. At the top of the artwork, red coloured text reads: ‘The time machine’. Below this, hand-written black text reads: ‘a comedy’. Underneath this text: (left to right) A young woman wearing light blue denim dungarees over a grey and white striped jumper, a young man wearing a dark navy denim jacket over a red T-shirt, and a young man with a beard wearing a red jumper, all look shocked as they fall backwards together. Around their waist, a water ripple-like effect that warps their bodies. On their left, a light blue circle with text reading: ‘(very) loosely adapted from the novel by H.G. Wells.’ On the far-left bottom of the artwork, text reads: ‘Four starts. Gloriously silly, unrestrained fun. The Stage.'. Below this text, additional text reads: ‘Written by Steven Canny & John Nicholson’. On the far-right bottom of the artwork, text reads: ‘Five stars. One of the best nights out ever! West End Best Friend’. Below this text, additional text reads: ‘Directed by Orla O’Loughlin.’

Student Ambassador

Help us spread the word about our U26 Membership.

We’re looking for university students to help us encourage young people to make the most of their local theatre. Whether that means reaching out to student societies, reviewing our productions, finding spots for posters on campus, or promoting our U26 Membership at events, we are excited to work with the next generation of theatre-goers. In exchange, Student Ambassadors can access free tickets for selected shows, paid promotional opportunities at £10.50 per hour, and networking opportunities with theatre professionals.

We are not currently recruiting Student Ambassadors, but will reopen applications at the beginning of the 2024/2025 academic year. If you would like to be notified when this happens, please register your interest below.
