How to make your
support go further
As you know, the BFI is a registered charity and Gift Aid tickets,
which include an optional 10% donation, are a great way to
make your support go even further. It’s a donation of 50p on
most tickets. Just tick the box to confirm that you’re a UK tax
payer and the BFI can also claim extra money back from the
government. So for every eligible £10 Gift Aid ticket you buy,
we can claim an extra £2.50!
For most performances, you can book up to four discounted
BFI Southbank tickets and up to two BFI Festivals tickets
unless otherwise stated.

Gift Aid Declaration
I am a UK taxpayer and would like The British Film Institute to reclaim the tax on any qualifying donations paid in the past 4 years,
today and in the future. I confirm that I have paid or will pay an amount of UK Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for each tax year
(6 April – 5 April) that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs that I donate to
will reclaim on my gifts for that tax year. I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. I understand the
British Film Institute will reclaim 28p of tax on every £1 that I gave up to 5 April 2008 and will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that
I gave on or after 6 April 2008. For terms and conditions, please see
