Becoming a member of Summerseat Players will enable you to be covered by our insurance when on the premises, but it also means that, as an ‘active member’ you get to hear about the latest events, updates, as well as any play announcements, readings and castings, usually ahead of the general public.

Being a member for a minimum of 3 consecutive years also entitles you to vote at our AGM and once you have been a member for 25 years, you will be endowed with our coveted ‘Silver Pin’ and you then have free lifetime membership! (You get a gold pin at 50 years membership!)

Finally, your membership helps to contribute to the ongoing growth, development and upkeep of our wonderful theatre.

The current annual membership is just £10 per person.  We ask that memberships are paid by 30th November annually.
