John Peel Theatre Friendship Scheme

Wigton Theatre Club is a charity run entirely by volunteers. We own the John Peel Theatre which is our much loved home, but as an old building it is expensive to run and maintain. We rely entirely on ticket sales and refreshment sales for our income, but we put on free Open Mic Nights almost every month, and the odd free show such as Remembering. Please consider leaving a donation in the box in the foyer- help us keep the lights on and pay our many bills!

Help us grow
By donating to our funds, or becoming a Friend of John Peel Theatre, you will help us to improve facilities.
Audience donations have helped us to expand our tiny foyer into a cosy bar area; refurbish the auditorium and upgrade the exterior of the building.

We have three three levels of membership:
Bronze membership £25 +

Silver membership £50 +

Gold membership £100 +

Friends’ names will appear on a roll of honour board in the new bar as well as on this page.

Meet Our Friends! Thank You!
