Support Us

The Theatre is registered as a charity, the Theatre Arts Action Trust.

As a Grade 2 listed building, it is maintained to a high standard, whilst meeting our artistic objectives and generating income. While the bulk of our income comes from the hire of the theatre and rehearsal spaces, we are continually looking for funds to develop the theatre - be it the creative work we do or our fixtures and fittings.

Any contribution to our funds to help us maintain the high standard of work both on and off stage is much appreciated.
