Benefactors are our major individual supporters. The commitment of our benefactors ensures that we can continue to produce a diverse and exciting programme year upon year, whilst expanding our community engagement work and maintaining our Grade II* listed building.

Benefactors may choose to support a particular strand of our work, such as a youth project, outreach touring programme or artist development initiative - or to contribute towards our annual equipment costs - giving us the sound, lighting and stage equipment that bring our productions to life.

We ask for a minimum donation of £500 from our benefactors, and in exchange we offer complimentary tickets and events - hosting opportunities, acknowledgement of your generosity in our Theatre and print material, as well as naming rights for larger donations.

If you have a passion for the Theatre, and would be interested in making a donation at this level, please contact Jon Ingham, Head of Fundraising & Partnerships on 01924 334 116, or email
