Become a Friend

We love making new Friends!

Or maybe you're our Hero...
...or a Hackney Empire Legend?

Since 1901, we've been a local landmark where people can come together to share unforgettable experiences. Generations have had their first experience of live theatre inside Hackney Empire and each year thousands of young people discover a second home where they can be creative, transform their lives and ignite their careers.

But we can't do this without your help. Find out more about becoming a Hackney Empire Friend, Hero or Legend and we'll take you to the heart of our legendary theatre!

All of our memberships are also available to purchase as gifts.
