The Tate Lecture Series has a waiting list with over 600 patron names. On average, we accept about 25 new patrons from the waiting list each year who are granted season tickets in the second balcony. To be added to the waiting list, please submit your information online by completing the new patron form below.

Requests for season tickets from new patrons will be placed on the waiting list and considered in the order in which they are received. When season tickets become available, the Tate office will contact patrons on the waiting list in order. If you are contacted, you have two business days to respond and purchase season tickets. Should you choose NOT to purchase the available season tickets at that time, they will be offered to the next person on the waiting list and you will keep your place in the queue for the following year.

In addition to placing yourself on the waiting list, we encourage you to purchase tickets to individual lectures during the upcoming season. If season tickets become available, you will be charged/refunded accordingly.
