Your membership means so much to the theatre. The Eastgate relies on the support of its Friends to fund various activities and items for the theatre, cafe and studio.

You, in turn, receive a variety of useful benefits, but importantly the theatre benefits hugely from your patronage and financial support. We hope that as a Friend you will support the performances and the café as much as you can.

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.
