Tristan Bates Theatre

Support Us

'The TBT is a key lifeline for all theatre artists seeking a space dedicated to the promotion of new writing. As such, it deserves all the help going from every moneyed source on the theatrical planet.' Trevor Griffiths

The Tristan Bates Theatre is part of the Actors Centre which is a registered charity. There are many ways in which individuals and organisations can support our work, for example by leaving a legacy, donating goods or services, or sponsoring individual productions.


For just £95, you can now name a seat in the Tristan Bates Theatre! 

Naming a seat is a unique, personal way to support us and the actors and artists we nurture, while helping us continue to invest in the TBT following our recent capital project.

In your name, in memory of a loved one, or as a gift for someone special, your donation will help us support the UK’s most exciting, dynamic artists.

In fantastic company with Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Michael Frayn among those already signed up, you’ll also  be helping fellow theatre-lovers enjoy shows from the comfort of our new seats!
