Friends and Patrons of the International Festival also have access to an exclusive programme of year round events, including everything from backstage tours and talks with artists to overseas trips to joining us for a pre-performance or interval drink during the International Festival. We also offer the chance to catch up with fellow members and arts lovers at our regular Friends on Monday coffee mornings plus lunches and afternoon teas throughout the year. These events provide exclusive behind-the-scenes insights, bringing you closer to the International Festival and enhancing your festival experience year round.
