Festival Players

The Festival Players are very dear to us at CFT, forming a community of theatre-loving individuals who care about and contribute to the future success of CFT. The scheme is designed so that it generates much-needed income for us, and at the same time offers you exclusive access in recognition of your generosity.

Each year we need to raise £1 million in voluntary donations from individuals. Without their support, we could not continue planning the kind of ambitious productions that Chichester Festival Theatre is now internationally famous for, or running our community programme that benefits over 60,000 people each year.

Membership is on an annual basis and can be paid in yearly, quarterly or monthly instalments. Each membership level consists of the benefit value and a suggested voluntary donation amount that is eligible for Gift Aid. To discuss making a donation of a different amount, please contact the Development Team at development.team@cft.org.uk or call 01243 812900.

I am very proud to be associated with Chichester Festival Theatre. To be able to give some extra support to such consistently fine work gives me a sense of engagement with the life of the theatre. Long may it continue to flourish.

JOHN SHAKESHAFT, FESTIVAL PLAYER
