Sage Supporters are great! You could be one!

Posted on 31 August 2012

The Sage Supporter Scheme is the membership scheme of Sage Gateshead. Sage Supporters play a key role in our success, and enjoy exclusive benefits. Each membership provides benefits for up to two people in a household. To show you the true benefits our Sage Supporters enjoy, here’s a sneak peek at a selection of opportunities members have experienced this year:

Watch world class performances

In June our Sage Supporters were given a 24 hour head start to beat the rush to purchase highly sought after tickets to see Mumford and Sons. As well as that presale opportunity supporters have enjoyed early booking for other acts including Van Morrison, Ray Davies and others.

As well as giving Sage Supporters the chance to be the first to bag tickets for their favourite shows, we like to treat them once in a while by giving them one off ticket deals. This year our members have benefit from 2-4-1 ticket offers for John Wilson and Ramin as well as lower priced tickets for our Food and Wine Fair and many other benefits.

We know that many of our supporters love our classical programme and by becoming a Sage Supporter they have had the opportunity to book for the entire classical programme before in advance, in order to help secure their favourite seats, and to listen to their favourite pieces of music.

Party With Us

We were lucky enough to be a part of the Olympic Relay this year and decided we would welcome the Olympic Flame in style. Our supporters were given the first invitations to a very special breakfast, with a unique viewing point to see the torch as it abseiled its way down the side of the building. We then enjoyed bubbles, great local food and music together.

Our Supporters are steadily becoming part of our programme to welcome in the festive period. We know Christmas is beginning when we have our Supporters Christmas party where members are given the opportunity to sit in on the final rehearsal of Northern Sinfonia’s Christmas Concert and see how things work behind the scenes.

One regular benefit members enjoy is discounts on the food on offer in The Brasserie and The Cafe as well as 10% discount in our shop. Level 2 members can get a car park pass and park at a discounted rate of £1.20 for a day.

Last year we let Level 3 Sage Supporters into the secrets of the technical workings of the venue, with a special technical tour of the building in which the supporters got hands on experience of lighting and sound and now have a greater understanding of the acoustics of the building and what we aim to achieve.
