Become a Friend

The greatest way to show support for the Regal, apart from coming to see the shows and having some fun, is to become a FRIEND OF THE REGAL. The Regal values highly the support and encouragement it receives from the Friends and in return offers them many concessions and benefits. The annual subscription entitles you to receive regular newsletters about activities, discounts on most tickets when booking in advance (usually 50p) and the satisfaction of knowing that you are supporting the local community theatre! (Please note that membership of the Friends of the Regal is separate from Film Society Membership)

To become a friend, call at the box office and pick up an application form. Alternatively, you can donate via – donations always gratefully received!

If you would like to get more involved in the everyday running of the theatre, please contact us, as new volunteers are always welcome!


The Regal Theatre is a hugely successful community project. Over 200 volunteers contribute to maintaining the building and to opening the theatre for events, and refreshments in the bar, on over 120 nights a year.
