The Friends of the Grove Theatre are a group of volunteers committed to supporting and developing the life and enjoyment of the theatre. This includes raising funds to improve the Grove, and for those interested in a more up-front role, provide volunteer help for reception, box office, the bar and coffee lounge and its maintenance.

The friends are led by a Coordinator who jointly chairs with the General Manager a small committee which plans Friends’ events and provides feedback to the Chief Executive and management team.

For an annual membership fee, friends receive discounts on all ticket prices.

The Friends of the Grove also aim to publish a regular newsletter which is sent to members.
