Millgate Appeal and Developments

Millgate Arts Centre has launched an appeal to raise funds towards improving and maintaining this fantastic volunteer run venue.

You can support the appeal in a number of ways …

Sponsor a chair for £150 (see details below – you can also choose to Gift Aid your donation). There are 160 seats available and more than 100 have been sponsored so far. Send a cheque payable to Millgate Arts Centre Ltd at the address below.

You can sponsor a chair for as little as £10 a month. We offer flexible ways to pay: a one-off payment of £150, a standing order of £50 for 3 years, or a standing order for £10 a month over 15 months – see below for details.

To recognise your gift we will:

• Add your name onto a plaque on the chair you choose
• Give you a Certificate of Thanks
• Send you a regular newsletter as a Friend of the Auditorium
• Allow priority booking at the beginning of the season so you can book your seat for the shows you want to see

How do I sign up?

You can choose the seat you want to sponsor  and either make a one-off donation £150 (with Gift Aid) or just make a commitment to a seat and we’ll send you a Standing Order and Gift Aid form. We also can help you sign-up at the Theatre, or you can telephone Ian Shepherd on 01457 874644.

For larger donations please email John Tanner at  or call 07802 385591.
