Become a patron

The Open Air Theatre has been part of our family's life for a long time. We are delighted to be Patrons and support the huge artistic and creative effort that goes into every production. Every person involved on stage, off stage and in all the support services is totally committed to excellence. The Open Air Theatre is unique and precious.

Olly and Jo Rogger

The support of our Patrons is invaluable. They are champions of our work and enjoy a closer relationship with the Open Air Theatre. With support starting from £300 up to £2,200, their contributions help us to stage bold and dynamic shows year after year.
