Make a Stand for Dorchester Arts

Save money on your tickets (and help Dorchester arts too …)

  • Individual Membership £20 a year
  • Joint Membership £30 a year (two adults at the same address)
  • Life Membership £200

Members are at the heart of our organisation and make a huge contribution to our aim of bringing great art to the whole community.

What are the benefits of membership?

It works two ways. As well as playing a vital part in supporting us financially with subscriptions and optional donations, you also receive the following benefits:

  • Discounts on tickets and priority booking for some events*
  • Invitations to launches, previews, the annual supporters’ party and to quarterly members-only breakfasts
  • Reciprocal membership of Bridport Arts Centre and the Marine Theatre Lyme Regis
  • Seasonal newsletter
  • 10% discount at Frank Herring and Sons (art and craft materials) and Steve Bane (fabrics)
  • Eligibility to stand for election to the Board of Dorchester Arts

*Individual Members can only buy tickets at ‘Member’ price for themselves, and Joint Members can buy one each. ‘Member’ price tickets can not be bought for non-members.

Many of our members choose to make donations as well, and you can read more about this on our ‘Support Us’ pages

Dorchester Arts is a membership organisation and members are eligible to vote at the Annual General Meeting and to stand for election to the Board of Trustees.
