Patrons Circle

Join our network of closest supporters and friends

Our Patrons Circle is a growing and vibrant network of people who share a passion for exploring and supporting the arts. In return for their donation they receive a range of benefits including priority booking, personalised service, special events and behind -the scenes access.


We invite you to become an individual patron from £1,000 or join as a couple for £1,500. For those looking to dip their toe in our Patrons Circle scheme and still experience a brilliant range of benefits, we invite you to join at £500.

“It’s great to share in something so vital to our city and that brings us personally closer to the action.”  Seb & Jo Royle
