Support from our Friends and donors contributes to all we do—from creating award-winning work, to inspiring the next generation of actors, dancers, producers and directors. In these difficult times, it has helped us produce digital content for home-schooling parents and teachers, support our local freelance artists and creators as we collaborate on new ways of working, and of course helped produce some extraordinary digital content for you, our valued audience.

We have been delighted to welcome patrons back into the theatre and have a range of benefits for supporters, including discounts in the café/restaurant, advance booking opportunities, and an invitation to a exclusive Friends event.
