The Theatre Royal is at the very heart of Bury St Edmunds and Suffolk's cultural offering, both as a community theatre and heritage site. It has been entertaining people on and off for almost 200 years - quite something!

Support Us

We enjoy some wonderful relationships with our supporters, the majority of whom we have worked with time and again. It has been, and continues to be, a huge pleasure.

In the Development Department we are tasked with raising £200,000 each year to support the Theatre (Registered charity number 242977), both with its work on stage and in the community, and we do so through Individual Supporters including Friends and Patrons, Business Sponsorship, Fundraising events and applications to Charitable Trusts. We are always delighted to meet people and build new relationships, so if you are interested in helping us, take a look at the menu on your right to find out more or do get in touch with us.
