Corn Exchange Companions

As a registered charity the support of our donors is crucial: helping us to sustain all that we do, including our work in the community with young people, families and the over 55s; our work in local schools providing creative learning opportunities; our free outdoor shows for everyone in Newbury and beyond; maintaining our beautiful listed building; and ensuring that we can continue to programme the best theatre, comedy, music, dance and films.

Our donors are extraordinary people making extraordinary things happen!

Become a Corn Exchange Companion at either Friend, Associate, Patron or Fellow level and your support will help us recover from the impact that the pandemic has had on our organisation. As a Companion you can make a significant impact on the work we do, playing a vital role in our future.

Our Companions are with us every step of the way from attending sharings of brand new shows at 101 through to celebrating the opening night of our pantomime. By joining us as a Companion you will be making a real difference to the work we are able to do.
