Organisation Membership

For organisations directly involved in the presentation and/or production of the performing arts.

An invaluable resource which is particularly important for networking opportunities as well as obtaining expert advice in an ever-changing sector.

Organisation Membership provides crucial legal and employment relations services, and a comprehensive range of services for theatre businesses and their staff developed over 120 years of supporting the sector.  

The annual fee includes a number of Professional Memberships for your staff (dependent on the organisation’s turnover) which provide additional benefits for those named individuals within the organisation. There is the option to purchase additional ‘Top-Ups’ for staff if required.

We will talk you through the rates and terms and conditions of our Collective Agreements, ensure that you are in a position to abide by our Articles of Association and help you decide if this is the right membership for you.
