Become A Friend
Why not become a Friend of The Swallow Theatre and support the work of both the theatre and the associated Swallow Theatre charity whilst enjoying some benefits in return?
The Swallow Theatre Association
The Swallow Theatre Association, is a registered charity which has been affiliated to the theatre since 1997.
The Association supports events that would not be viable in such a small rural venue, such as the Youth Drama Summer School, some professional theatre, and classical music.
When you become a Friend of The Swallow Theatre you also automatically become a member of The Swallow Theatre Association.
For creative companies and individuals who want to get away from it all and have focussed production development or rehearsal time. We can offer packages that include the use of the theatre, refreshment room (The Sumner Room) and the on-site self catering accommodation.
We can also offer production services including lighting design, sound design and photography.
We will be adding our technical facilities and venue information to the website in the near future. In the meantime please contact us using the button below.

The Swallow Theatre and the refreshment room are both available for hire at very reasonable prices.
The Theatre can be hired for small conferences (up to 50 people), talks, presentations, classes, rehearsals and performances.
The refreshment room (The Sumner Room) can be hired for meetings and classes.
