The Theatres Trust

Join the Friends

Our Friends are loyal, passionate supporters of theatres and have an important role to play in our work.

Friends receive Theatres Magazine which provides in-depth features on theatres and related articles covering architecture and design, planning, regeneration and development, heritage and theatre. Both Theatres Magazine and our website also provide up-to-date news of our casework and information on the development of theatre buildings across the UK.

Your membership subscription and donations go directly towards helping us respond quickly and with authority to protect theatres and provide expert advice. In return we aim to keep you up to date with the latest news on theatres across the country and informed about changes that have an impact on our work and the protection of theatres.

I look forward to welcoming you as a Friend of The Theatres Trust.
