About Us:

Formed in 1984, the Centenary year of the Devonshire Park Theatre, to encourage patronage of our lovely Victorian gem of a theatre and theatre-going in general, the Friends continues to be a strong organisation working for the benefit of the DPT to ensure that it remains part of our local community.

We have more than 1300 dedicated and enthusiastic supporters and much of their effort goes towards fundraising to support projects in the theatre. Additionally, we provide an audio description service for blind and partially sighted theatre-goers and a team of volunteer stewards works alongside the paid employees at every performance in the theatre.  

Over the years more than £360,000 has been raised to improve facilities - not only for the theatre-goers -  but also backstage for the actors appearing there. 

We are always looking for new and innovative ways of raising funds as we feel passionately about our beautiful theatre and want to see it continue to thrive in these difficult times and into the future. 

We appreciate your help in this and wish you luck!

Chris Barber - Chairman
