Your chance to join the Friends of The Playhouse

Now The Playhouse is officially back open and welcoming audiences of all ages once again through its doors to shows such as musicals, comedy and live music, we’re delighted to announce that Weston’s much loved and active support group, The Friends of the Playhouse are once again relaunching and looking for new members with a passion for the arts, socialising and joining in group activities. 


The Friends of the Playhouse was formed in 1991 and not only offers members the opportunity to benefit from a range of discounts at the Playhouse but also to join in on many different activities and social events. Events vary from weekly coffee mornings to trips both locally and further afield for those who wish to participate.


Benefits at the Playhouse include discounted tickets, the opportunity to purchase tickets first for certain shows and also discounts at the theatre bars.  


All money raised by the friends is used to support the venue in ensuring that it can continue to offer the best possible facility to both professional and community events.  To date, the Friends have raised and donated over £260,000 to the Playhouse.  

Membership costs just £15 for the year (with existing Friends membership price frozen at £10 until 2022), and not only could you be entitled to savings on selected shows and discounts at the theatre bar, but you could also be helping raise vital funds to secure the future of the venue.

Membership information is available at the Playhouse Box Office, or you can find out more at the Friends Membership Day on Saturday 25th September where the venue will also be offering a number of exclusive discounts and benefits to those who sign up for membership on the day.

The Committee also have a number of vacant posts which they are keen to fill for anyone interested in a hands-on role within the committee.

We look forward to welcoming both existing and future friends to join us on the 25th September. The Friends AGM will also be taking place on 25th September to which all existing members as well as future members are invited to attend. For those wishing to attend the AGM aspect of the day please arrive from 10am for a 10.30am start. The venue will be open 10am - 1pm for Membership Day sign ups and any membership enquiries.
