The Tate is doing £5 tickets for 16-25 year olds

Eddy Frankel

London museums are brilliantly and mercifully free, but still host plenty of big paid exhibitions. Last week, we calculated that it would have cost you just under £500 to visit every major art exhibition in London last year. That’s prohibitively expensive for the majority of people, let alone the under-25s. That’s all set to change though, as the Tate announced this morning that it would be setting up a £5 ticket scheme. It involves becoming part of the free-to-join Tate Collective, you’ll then be able to go to any Tate show for £5 and bring up to three buddies for £5 each too. That’s a pretty sweet deal, considering that big shows can often cost up to £20 to get into. You can join the very Borg-sounding Tate Collective right here. If, however, you have the misfortune of being too old to join, console yourself with the fact that you were probably a terrible teenager, and are now almost definitely a slightly less-worse adult.
