Full OTO Membership combines all of the benefits of our Venue and Digital membership strands, getting you cheaper tickets, cheaper merchandise, access to early-bird booking and exclusively-free-to-members shows, as well as opening up our huge digital catalogue.
Your membership is invaluable in helping us do what we do; keeping our programme as exciting and far-reaching as possible, allowing us to fund incredible new recordings, and support and develop new artists.
Your membership payments also help to subsidise our free concession memberships, helping to ensure that OTO’s programme remains accessible to as many people as possible.
If you would like to support us further, you can opt to increase your monthly or annual membership payments when you sign up. Whatever the amount, your contribution is hugely appreciated.
CAN I USE MY MEMBERSHIP DISCOUNT WHEN BUYING TICKETS ON THE DOOR?
Yes. Please bring ID with you. Please note that we cannot guarantee entry to members so advance booking is recommended.
CAN I USE MY MEMBERSHIP DISCOUNT WHEN BUYING RECORDS AND OTHER ITEMS IN THE CAFE SHOP?
Yes. Please bring ID.
HOW DO THE CREDITS WORK?
We’ll add five credits to your account each month. Each of these credits can be used to download any recordings from the ‘Digital Downloads’ section of our website - including releases on other labels. If you have credits, you'll be given the option to download any of the available titles under the 'BUY' links.
There is no time limit on using your credits whilst you remain a member.
The website will show you how many credits you have left and when they will next refresh.
DO THE ARTISTS GET PAID?
Yes. When you download a recording as part of your digital membership we pay the artist £1. For downloads by non-members we pay the artists 50% of receipts.
WHAT IS THE RECORDING QUALITY LIKE?
All of the live recordings available will be professionally mixed and mastered and approved by the artists. Most recordings are sourced from the high quality multi-track hard disc recorder we installed in May 2013 and all are handled with the same attention to quality that we’ve given our vinyl LP releases.
Recordings are available to download as 320k MP3 / 24-bit FLAC files or 320k MP3 / 16-bit FLAC in the case of some older external labels.
DO YOU OFFER GIFT MEMBERSHIPS?
Gift Memberships are available across all Membership tiers in periods of 3 months, 6 months and a year. When purchasing the gift membership you will receive a pdf voucher with a unique membership code that can either be sent directly to the recipient or saved to be presented at a later date. Gift memberships do not renew.
DO I GET A MEMBERSHIP CARD?
We don't issue membership cards, but your membership is automatically registered when buying tickets or items from our shop online. Please bring ID for discounts on tickets and records in the cafe shop.
DO I NEED TO RENEW MY MEMBERSHIP WHEN IT EXPIRES?
Your membership will automatically renew on a monthly or annual basis - depending on what you initially purchased. To cancel your membership you just need to log in to your account on our website and terminate the membership before your next payment date.
You can also switch to a Full Membership or Digital Membership by going to your profile page (log in to the Cafe OTO website and then click on your name in the top right of the screen) and selecting the “upgrade membership” option.
