Putting the Arts at the centre of the community

As ever, we are dependent on our theatre volunteers who kindly assist and support the theatre staff with the running and promotion of the theatre. It is an ideal opportunity to learn technical theatre, promotion and box office skills.   If you would like to become a volunteer please email us at: boxoffice@robertludlamtheatre.com

Adopt a Seat


The lovely theatre seating is now 15 years old and needs all of its seats reupholstering. The tier was bought with funds from a grant; unfortunately no such grants exist to help us with its upkeep.


Please consider donating when you purchase tickets toward the seating restoration fund.
