It may surprise you to hear we have always been a registered charity. Ticket sales covers half of our running costs and we rely on a range of support to continue our work. This year we need to raise over £100,000 to keep on going. 

As a Patron, individuals like you can  help us build the sets, make the costumes, bring the  most exciting actors to your stage and safeguard the Octagon for future generations. In return, experience a truly rewarding relationship with your theatre, see shows in the  making and gain access behind the scenes. 

To find out more contact Danni, Head of Development: danielle.fearnley@octagonbolton.co.uk

From £100 a month or £1,200 a year
