Theatre for all

Our year-round programme of community events for adults includes everything from weekly classes to talks and tours. Whether you are looking to build your confidence, gain new skills or to discover more about the Theatre and productions we hope you’ll find something of interest to you. 

We aim to provide life-changing experiences for people who might otherwise miss out, and to enrich people’s lives with the joy of creative expression and socialising.

It's nice to be more fun and extrovert, when life has made us "grown-up" over the years!

Heritage Volunteering

CFT’s Heritage Lottery-funded project Pass It On began in 2013, aiming to capture, explore and share the history of CFT and its building. In partnership with the West Sussex Record Office, work began on sorting and preserving the rich materials in the archive, creating an accessible resource for staff, members of the public and researchers.

Alongside our Heritage Team, heritage volunteers meet weekly on Monday afternoons to assist with the upkeep of CFT’s archive. Volunteers work with ephemera relating to the 50+ years of theatrical productions, including production photographs, videos, press cuttings, posters and programmes. In addition, heritage volunteers receive a number of additional benefits and opportunities as part of their work with us.

We are always keen to expand our volunteering pool and would love to hear from individuals of all abilities and backgrounds who are interested in the Theatre and its history. Please complete an Expression of Interest form here, selecting ‘heritage volunteers’ as your area of interest. For more information, please contact
