Support Us

You already know by now that we don’t just make plays. We’ve always seen ourselves as part of the local community, and we spend a lot of our time meeting people from all over the place, teaching them creative skills, building their confidence, giving them a chance to have a voice and showing how art can really change lives.

We need all sorts of partners to help our work grow. You could be a business or individual with skills that we can make use of, a supplier who can help add value to our projects, or maybe you are in a position to commission or fund our work – we’d love to hear from you.

We have small projects that need support as well as big ones. Whether we are working with a smaller group of disadvantaged participants or putting on a play to thousands of theatre fans,
we can use your help. We want to expand our work to reach more people, and continue to create bigger impact with higher quality projects.



Our seat Campaign

It took a little while…But we are delighted to have our dream seating at last! We were overjoyed to have been awarded funding from Arts Council England towards our seating, which combined with the support of all of our seat campaign donors meant our dream seating in The Avenue Theatre could become a reality for all to enjoy! It’s still flexible & can be moved about…We wanted to keep the element of surprise, so don’t expect it to be the same each time you visit!

If you would like to sponsor one of our remaining un-named seats, to support our work and become a permanent presence in the heart of the theatre, please contact: sarahATredrosechain.com or call our Box Office on 01473 603388

For a donation of £230, you or your company will support our work and have a permanent presence at the heart of The Avenue Theatre by funding one of only 110 named seats in the venue!

We would like to thank all of our seat sponsors so far: Emma Freud, Jimmy & Caela Doherty, Steve Curzon, Paddy & Sarah Bishopp, the Bell family, Pauline Norman, John Newborn, Anila & Simon Commercial, Inga & Tim Lockington, Lattice Lodge, Ipswich Town & Waterfront, the Carey family, DP Agency Ltd.
