Become a Friend

Friends of Clonter

Collectively, the Friends of Clonter represent our largest and most sustainable source of regular funding.

Clonter believes in the power of theatre to enhance quality of life, empower young people and provide a stimulating environment for people of all ages to escape the rigours of everyday life.

We have bold plans for the future but we need your help to turn those plans into reality. Every ticket sold, subscription or donation that you make directly supports and protects the future of Clonter.
