Garrick Friends

Altrincham Garrick Playhouse is the beating heart of the community. A theatre, cinema, youth academy and community creative social place for all to enjoy.

Become a Friend of the Garrick

Our Theatre is a charity, and is managed by a handful of paid staff and many volunteers. We receive no funding from local authorities or Arts organisations.

We are an important part of the local community, offering opportunities for learning in our Academy, making friendships in our Show Choir, and hosting local social groups. Our overriding aim is to bring alive your imagination, through our varied productions on our main stage and in our studio theatre.

We’d like to invite you to become a Friend of the Garrick, to join the Garrick Community and receive tickets at a discount. Please enrol online here, or speak to our box office staff, to become a member of our Friends of the Garrick audience loyalty scheme.

  • Gold Friends, for a £30 annual fee, can purchase unlimited discounted priced tickets*.

  • Silver Friends, for a £20 annual fee, can purchase 2 discounted priced tickets per production*.

  • 25U, free for 16 to 25 year olds, can purchase one discounted ticket (for every performance, of Garrick productions only).


* Note: Gold and Silver discounts apply to all Garrick productions, in addition to some visiting productions.

We really need your financial support, so please be a “Friend” to the Garrick.

Membership Secretary

What else can I do to play my part?

If you have an interest in theatre, want to tread the boards or work front or back stage then become a Garrick Volunteer for free.

We are always looking for new talent, any age, to volunteer in all areas of the theatre. Your help is invaluable to us and we promise you that the satisfaction of a job well done, will really surprise you, as well as the opportunity to make new friends and become part of the Garrick Team.

If you are interested, please email: with your full contact details and the area which you are interested getting involved in.

Even if you are unable to spend the time helping the Garrick in a more active way, or maybe, work and other commitments mean time is at a premium, there other simple ways you can help your Garrick.

When you come and see a show, try to pick up a leaflet or A4 poster from the the Box Office or in the Bar. You could display one in your local Library, office/place of work or even your local club or shop, (please make sure you have permissions to do so).

If you have enjoyed a show, tell your friends/colleagues – please spread the word about your theatre! – this kind of help, however small can make a huge difference to the Garrick.

Thank you.
