The Friends of York Theatre Royal

The Friends of York Theatre Royal are an enthusiastic theatre-loving group keen to support local theatre, raise funds and meet others who share a passion for the arts. In 2019, the Friends will be celebrating their 60th anniversary.

Becoming a Friend of York Theatre Royal is an opportunity to get involved with events and activities, including:

Meeting new people;
Visiting places of interest both within North Yorkshire and further afield;
Attending monthly luncheons;
Participation in exclusive, Friends only events;
Much more!

In recent years the Friends have raised over £10,000 for the Theatre to help with a variety of projects.

In 2010 £3,000 was given towards the commissioning of Mike Kenny's Peter Pan (performed in the 2011 Ensemble Season), and in 2011 the Friends made two donations, totalling £6,500, to purchase chairs and tables for use in De Grey Rooms. In 2018 the Friends raised £7000 for the decoration of the newly refurbished De Grey Rooms.

The Friends are keen to welcome new faces to participate in their numerous social and fund-raising initiatives, bringing fresh ideas and supporting local theatre. You can download a membership form HERE.
