Subscribe

Each season, The Richmond Forum produces a nationally-recognized series of five programs at Richmond’s beautiful Altria Theater. Tickets are sold as a season subscription that includes all five programs. Tickets are not available for purchase for individual programs.

Each year, any seats remaining after our current subscribers have had a chance to renew their subscriptions are sold via a ticket lottery. The lottery gives everybody an equal chance of being able to join us as a new subscriber.

If you would like to become a season subscriber for the 2018-2019 season, join our email list and we will notify you when the lottery opens in June 2018.

If you have any questions about the information below, please call Debbie Mangolas, Director of Subscriber Services, at (804) 330-3993, ext. 1.

Advertising Forum Tickets for Resale is Prohibited
Due to the high-profile nature of our speakers and the security surrounding many of our programs, advertising or otherwise publicizing Richmond Forum tickets for sale is strictly prohibited.

Renewal Policy
Each year, any seats not renewed by Subscribers will be used to upgrade renewing Subscribers who wish to improve their seats.

Current Subscribers may register in the Lottery for additional seats, provided that the number of seats requested would not bring that Subscriber household’s total seats to more than four.
