Tate Patrons have a close relationship with Tate, helping to share art with our diverse audiences, and enjoy curator-led exhibition tours at Tate and other galleries, visits to private collections and artist studios, invitations to opening receptions, and art trips in Europe and beyond.

Each level of Patron membership has its own distinct focus and enjoys special access to Tate. Young Patrons (aged 18–40) enjoy being part of a sociable group with a contemporary focus, Silver Patrons explore the UK’s diverse cultural landscape from the historical to the contemporary, Gold Patrons get to know the London and European art scenes with insights from Tate’s directors and curators, while Platinum Patrons enjoy the highest level of Patron engagement with premier access to Tate’s directors and curators, high-profile artists, leading collectors, and art specialists in the UK and internationally.
