Sit With Me

Sit With Me is a new scheme for visitors of the Corn Exchange who may not want to attend the theatre on their own.

Perhaps your friends and family aren’t interested in the same shows as you, or perhaps you’re a single theatergoer who would like some company for a change. At selected shows, Sit With Me volunteers will be on hand before the performance to say hello and introduce you to others, before they watch the show with you.

The shows included in the scheme in our Spring 2018 season are: Dancing Queen, Constructions of Thin AirTranslunar Paradise, Hyena, A Brave Face, Bay City Rollers, and Ballet Black: Double Bill

Once you’ve decided which shows you’d like to come and see simply call 0845 5218 218* or pop in to speak to our Box Office team, and quote 'Sit With Me' when booking your seats. Sit with Me Seats are bookable up to 5 working days before a performance, after this time we cannot guarantee availability. 

The Sit with Me volunteers will not assume responsibility for anyone attending the theatre with the scheme, therefore Sit with Me isn’t suitable for any unaccompanied patron in need of a carer, or for anyone under the age of 18. 


If you would like to volunteer some time as a Sit With Me volunteer, please contact or call 01635 582 666.
