Support Your Theatre

It’s (nearly) time to play the music! It’s (nearly) time to light the lights!
We feel incredibly lucky to be close to reopening our doors once again. But, after an unprecedented year, many theatres are struggling to keep afloat. Many others have sadly been forced to close.
Here are some of the ways you can support your local theatre:


Book A Ticket

We are delighted to be starting our live and film programmes again. Keep an eye on our What’s On page  for all the upcoming events. Our cinema tickets cost £3 – £7, making access to the big screen accessible and affordable.
Other theatres may not be hosting live events yet. Make sure to check websites and social media accounts to keep up to date. Lots of us have been hosting some great online content!

Make A Donation

As a registered charity, we rely heavily on the support of our kind donors. Donations keep us sustainable and able to continue our invaluable community work and protect the venue into the future.

Don’t forget, if you are a UK tax payer, theatre’s can claim an extra 25p from HMRC for every £1 you donate!


Buy Vouchers

Gift vouchers are the perfect present for all theatre-goers and are an easy way to support your local venue.

Our E-Vouchers can be purchased in any amount and redeemed in person at Box Office, over the phone or online as payment towards tickets to Shows, Films, Live Screenings or Memberships.

Gift E-Vouchers can be emailed directly to the recipient or to the purchaser to print and give.


Become A Member

Become a Friend - Support Your Theatre

Many theatres will provide audiences with the opportunity to become a member.

We have a range of membership options from Courtyard Club (ages 13 and under) and Courtyard Card (ages 14-30) to Friends and Patrons (ages 25+). All memberships include a host of different perks such as priority booking and discounted tickets.

If you know someone who would love to support The Courtyard and enjoy a fantastic range of benefits, why not get them a gift membership?


Join Business Supporters Club

Business Club - Support Your Theatre

Do you have a business which would benefit from supporting the arts?

We provide many options for business support which include advertising packages, sponsorship opportunities and Business Supporters Club memberships. All of these come with marketing and CSR benefits, as well as the chance to have your business seen by approximately 300,000 people a year.

Providing access to quality arts for a wide range of people is at the heart of what we do. Our business supporters help us sustain and develop our community work with people from all walks of life.
