The Friends of Eastgate

Become a Friend of The Eastgate

Like many arts organisations, the Eastgate is extremely fortunate to have a dedicated ‘Friends’ organisation which provides vital support to our fundraising efforts. Friends of the Eastgate is a separate organisation and registered charity, set up to provide year-round support for the theatre through funds raised from its own membership subscriptions, donations, and events.

Your membership means so much to the theatre. The Eastgate relies on the support of its Friends to fund various essential items for the theatre such as an upgraded IT system and a new dishwasher for the cafe.  Over each of the last 10 years the Friends have raised an average of £14,000.

To become a Friend of the Eastgate, the cost of membership is £35 per annum.

By becoming a ‘Friend’ you will automatically be registered as a member of the Eastgate Theatre at no additional cost. Eastgate members are invited to attend, and vote at, the theatre’s AGM where you can learn much more about what is going on at the Eastgate.

To say thank you for being a Friend, we are delighted to offer a range of benefits:

  • Exclusive newsletters and updates
  • Discounts on select live shows
  • Discounts at the café
  • Regular social activities
  • Opportunity to join the exclusive Friends Lottery

So, what are you waiting for? Please come join us now!
