Over the years, changes in audience booking habits, together with changes in expectations from visiting managers, has meant that our Friends Scheme has become out of step with current practice. We need to bring it into line with similar schemes at other theatres and ensure that it best serves the needs of the theatre and our audience. It is important to us that the Friends Scheme continues to benefit our audience whilst not being run at a loss to the theatre.

To become a Friend of the Theatre, simply call the Box Office on (01483) 44 00 00, or fill in the form here, print it off and send it into Friends Administrator, Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Guildford, Surrey GU1 3UX.
