Arts and culture offers and deals

Going to see exhibitions can be pretty pricey, so I’ll share ways to save money here on this page.

National Art Pass memberships

An Art Pass will normally cost you £73 for a year. As part of your membership, you’ll get free or cut-price entry to participating galleries and museums. This includes free entry to places such as the Natural History Museum and 50% off exhibitions at places such as the Tate and V&A. It’s run by the Art Fund.

Here are a few ways to bring down the price

Three months for £15

It’s rare to have shorter offers, so this three-month trial is a good way to try it out. Offer ends 31st January 2020.

25% off if you pay by Direct Debit

When you buy a full pass you’ll have the option to pay by direct debit, and if you do this the price drops by 25% in the first year. However it will renew at full price in subsequent years, so make a note in your diary if you don’t want it to auto-renew.

Double up

For £110 you can get double membership, allowing two people to go each time. You can also add the 25% off discount to this, making it £82.50 in total. The two adults, however, need to be living at the same address.

Bring a friend

There is an alternative option to add a plus one for an extra £40, allowing you to bring a guest each time. You can still save 25% on the initial membership but it’s not taken off the extra £40

Take the family

If you also want to bring kids along when you use your Art Pass you can buy a family pass for £115. Again you can use the direct debit discount in the first year to bring the price down to £86.25
