Support through Theatre Royal memberships is crucial to the success of Theatre Royal as some 12% of our overall income has to be raised each year through fundraising. As our members play an integral role in the theatre’s well-being we look to to reward members with great benefits.

  • Get 5% off tickets in price bands A & B – valid on all shows excluding Children’s Shows, Fundraising and Community Events & Panto.

Become a Friend

Donor Friend: £120

An opportunity to support the Theatre with £10 per month. We introduced Donor Friends in order to benefit from Gift Aid, which we cannot apply to our other Friend’s level membership. Donor Friends receive all the benefits of a Friend’s membership plus invitations to special events and rehearsals.

Of your £120 Donor Friends gift we can subtract your £47 Friends’ membership then the Government will add 25% Gift Aid on the remaining donation of £73, thus increasing the gift overall.
