Become a Friend

Become a Friend and help secure The Theatre’s future.

Our Friends are the first to know about new shows and get priority booking - never miss the chance to get the best ticket in town to see great comedy, music and drama in our intimate venue. Plus you'll be joining our community of likeminded Theatre and arts supporters.

Why not become Citadel Friends

Support us with a membership that includes an extra donation to The Theatre - giving £10 a month or £100 a year helps us to bring high quality shows to The Theatre and supports all our work with the local community, on and off the stage.

In return, as a Citadel Friend, you'll receive invitations to backstage tours of our in-house productions (including panto!) and are acknowledged in our auditorium, season brochures, and on the website.

Because Citadel Friend memberships include a donation they are eligible for Gift Aid.

Find out about becoming a Patron

Make a lasting impact on The Theatre by becoming a Patron, from £250 a year for up to two people at the same address.

In addition to Friends benefits Patrons also receive…

  • Ultra Priority booking for panto, a week before Friends booking
  • Special Patron's Events to discover what goes on behind the scenes, our plans for The Theatre and how your support helps others to access the Theatre.

Thank you to all of our current Citadel Friends.
