Support Us

You already know by now that we don’t just make plays.

At the heart of Red Rose Chain is our community. We deliver an amazing community theatre programme that provides an oasis and refuge to children and young adults that gives them a voice through high-quality arts activities and volunteering opportunities. All these community groups are without auditions and kept free at source to ensure that our work is as inclusive and accessible as possible.

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 grow our community work to reach more people, and continue to create bigger impact with higher quality projects.

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.

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: 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!
