Benefits of joining Market Harborough Drama Society (MHDS)

Market Harborough Theatre is a vibrant and exciting place to make new friends and join in the huge variety of community, social as well as theatrical events hosted throughout the year. Joining the Drama Society offers plenty of opportunities to get involved in the performances in both back and front of stage roles, to find out what’s going on and get advanced tickets, enjoy the many social and training events or perhaps even get involved in promoting the theatre and its charitable activities. As a member you will receive a copy of our newsletter Backstage in hard copy four times a year as well as receiving member updates throughout the season via email. As an added bonus you will also be able to buy tickets for Live Broadcasts of plays, opera and ballet, shown by Octagon Films, at discounted Octagon members’ rates. Backstage is also published in the members section of our website.

Membership Fees

Since we are a largely voluntary organisation, we are able to keep our membership fees low and we encourage new members to set up direct debit payments to settle their fees. We also encourage those eligible to complete a Gift Aid mandate form to allow us to recoup tax taken at source on membership fees.

Membership fees are due annually and there are discounts for students:
