From September onwards members and friends of Dorchester Arts, The Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis and Bridport Arts Centre will be able to take advantage of members’ discounts at the other two venues. All the venues offer special discounted rates to members on tickets for their performances and events, and the Marine Theatre offers members a 10% discount on drinks prices in their newly-refurbished bar.
Mark Tattersall, Artistic Director at Dorchester Arts said: “We value our members enormously and know that our partner venues in West Dorset feel the same. We hope this scheme will encourage existing members to visit partner venues more often and attract other arts lovers to join their local venue now that the benefits are so generous and far-reaching”
Individual annual memberships are modestly priced, with joint and family options also available.
Director of Bridport Arts Centre Polly Gifford said “Working more closely with our partner venues has been very positive for the organisations and now we can offer direct benefits to members too, which is fantastic.”
The scheme is part of a wider collaborative effort between the three venues, which also includes bringing touring performers to two or three venues on consecutive dates, as well as sharing ideas, innovations and information.
