Thinking of joining our Friend's Scheme? Let us answer your most frequent questions.

What Do I Get?

We know that there are a lot of organisations very much in need of your support and we thank you for considering us. In return for your membership, you will receive:

  • A free drink on the house (one per month if you’re part of our Advanced membership!)
  • Half-price tickets to all of our workshops
  • A free ticket to our annual Common Shakespeare Company production (thinking of Advanced? You can have 5 free tickets!)
  • Access to our exclusive member’s newsletter with further deals and offers
  • Your name and a dedicated thank you in each of our show materials.

How Much Does It Cost?

There are two membership tiers which are billed monthly. You can opt to pay an annual fee, which will save you 15%. 

Monthly: £5
Annual: £50

Monthly: £10
Annual: £100

Did you know? You can donate more, as often as you are able, by making a direct donation to us. Click here for details.

Where Does The Money Go?

Every penny of the money from your donation goes towards supporting our community and voluntary work. We rely on sales from our bar to keep our venue open, and we don’t receive any funding for our community work, which is why we need your support. The money will be spent on providing essential services and helping to ensure we can reach the widest group of people with our workshop and community programmes. This may help to pay for travel expenses for someone to attend a job interview or to subsidise the cost of a workshop for a group who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford to join. Every penny really does make a huge difference.

How Do I Cancel?

Your membership will auto-renew each month (or year, dependent on your payment method) until you choose to cancel. To stop payments, simply visit your banking app on mobile or desktop and cancel the direct-debit. It’s as simple as that. You don’t need to give us any notice, you don’t need to give a reason. As soon as you cancel, payments from your account will stop. Of course, if it’s just a temporary thing, you can easily pick things back up again when you’re ready to continue.

Can I Get A Refund?

All of our money goes straight into supporting our communities and helping to power our art – you can cancel your membership with immediate effect (see above), but we aren’t able to offer refunds for Membership already paid.
