Brimming with benefits, The Everyman Theatre’s new Priority Access membership features a host of exclusive perks and is the perfect gift for someone who loves the arts or enjoys new experiences and live entertainment.

Priority Access Membership gives new members the chance to be the first to hear about world-class events at the theatre and secure the best seats in the house, at least 24 hours before anyone else.

Members will also be treated to a special gift on their birthday and will be kept up to date on the latest Everyman Theatre news with exclusive membership emails.

Funds raised from the Priority Access Membership helps to support the work of The Everyman Theatre’s Education and Community department, which engages with over 14,000 individuals from diverse communities across Gloucestershire each year. Projects include promoting wellbeing, inclusivity and positive mental health, such as singing sessions at Wentworth Court Nursing Home for residents with dementia. So not only are you giving someone the amazing gift of entertainment this Christmas, you would also be helping to support thousands of individuals across Gloucestershire too.

Priority Access Membership costs just £45 per year (or free for 16 – 25-year-olds), making this a fantastic (and very reasonably priced) gift. Find out more here:

Sponsor a seat

If you’re looking for an extra special, unique gift or a way to mark a significant occasion, consider sponsoring a seat for someone in The Everyman Theatre’s magnificent main auditorium. Your chosen seat will have a specially inscribed brass plaque with your name (or the recipient’s name) on it, or a special message, which will remain in place for at least 10 years and your donation will be acknowledged on The Everyman’s foyer screens. By sponsoring a seat you’ll not only be giving a truly remarkable and unique gift to someone, but you’ll also play a leading role in supporting your local theatre and the wider community.

The funds generated from The Everyman Theatre’s sponsored seats enable the theatre to offer a range of educational, community and outreach programmes, engaging with thousands of individuals and communities across the county.

The Everyman supports a youth theatre, community choirs, dementia friendly programmes and offers options for audiences with specific needs, such as audio described performances for the visually impaired, captioned and British Sign Language interpreted performances for those with hearing impairments, and relaxed performances for those with learning disabilities. In addition, the theatre offers professional training for students and innovative drama and music workshops to promote wellbeing and positive mental health. The Everyman works with a variety of local charities, bringing the magic and wonder of live theatre to thousands of children, young people and vulnerable adults across Gloucestershire each year. As a registered charity, The Everyman’s box office income alone, especially post-pandemic, isn’t enough to support these life-enhancing community and education projects. The funds generated by sponsoring a seat enables the theatre to continue to offer community, education and outreach support, helping to make the arts more accessible to all.
