Support Us

The Huddersfield Thespians is one of the oldest and respected amateur dramatics societies in Yorkshire. It plays a key role in the community, bringing people together from all walks of life to work together creatively.  Its productions have brought pleasure to thousands of people. The society receives no grants and is entirely reliant on membership subscriptions and donations. If you don’t want to get involved but would like to support us by becoming a member, please contact  or make a donation using the PayPal button.

Become a member

There are all sorts of ways to get involved with the Thespians – see ‘Get involved’. If you want to join us, we do ask that you become a member. This helps us to cover costs such as the rent on our workshop at Oakes, insurance, and the overall cost of putting on a play.

Membership costs £20 per year.

Membership benefits include:

– A monthly newsletter (by post or email)

– Regular email news updates

To become a member, please contact for a form.

Become a sponsor

Local businesses and organisations can sponsor individual productions and promote themselves at the same time. Sponsorship can take many forms, and we’d be happy to talk through what might suit you best.

One example would be a contribution of £200. In return, we would give you a full-page advert in the play programme, your logo on our posters and on the front page of our website for four months, a link from our website to yours, a write-up in our newsletter that goes out to all our members monthly, a mention in email alerts/Twitter feeds leading up to and during the play, and ten free tickets to see the play.

Previous sponsors include the Huddersfield Giants, Mezzo, Gardinia Windows and Wallace Arnold.
