How to Support Us

The generous support from our community is vital in order to support the costs associated with a specific show, workshop, exhibition, or other activity at the Eastgate.  These funds can be used to guarantee artists’ fees, provide equipment, contribute to marketing and publicity, cover hospitality costs, and other day to day items.

Additionally, these can make a significant difference to the Eastgate’s schedule of events – for example securing an extra high-quality performance in the auditorium, contributing towards the cost of the theatre’s outreach programme, supporting the training and management of the team of volunteers.

The Eastgate is particularly keen to develop long-term relationships, lasting a year or more, with regular givers who would like to make an ongoing commitment to the work of the theatre.  Funding of this order helps provide the Eastgate with the financial security to make longer term plans, such as developing the artistic strategy, building creative partnerships, extending education and outreach programmes, grow the audience base and raise the profile of Peebles and the surrounding area as a centre for creativity.
