Become a Patron

When you become a Patron, we bring you closer to the dance you love. As well as enjoying more of everything Sadler’s Wells has to offer, you play an important role in the continuation and evolution of our work, and the future of dance.

As a Patron, you’ll get access to a range of benefits, including a personalised booking service, invitations to exclusive special events and opportunities to go behind the scenes and meet the artists.

We’re a registered charity, so your support will directly contribute to the work we do both on and off the stage. From creative learning programmes and artist development to exciting new commissions and productions, you’ll make it possible for us to keep creating, curating and presenting dance in all its forms.

There are six different levels of patronage. We invite you to take a look at the options below and find the level that suits you.

Terms and Conditions

Gift Aid

Gift Aid is a simple way of making your donation go further.

Gift Aid

What is Gift Aid?

When you donate through Gift Aid, we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give without costing you any extra.

Your donations will qualify as long as they’re not more than four times more than what you’ve paid in tax in that tax year.

If you pay tax above the basic rate, you can claim the difference between the rate you pay and basic rate on your donation. Make sure to include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self-Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code.

You can also donate your tax relief to Sadler’s Wells through your tax return.

All the details are on the HMRC website.
