The Foyer Club is The Octagon Theatre's team of fantastic volunteers. They are now a registered charity who fundraise in support of the arts. Registered Charity Number: 1155888.
When you visit The Octagon it will probably be Foyer Club members who greet you, show you to your seat, sell you a programme or ice cream and answer your enquiries.
The Foyer Club also help us to stuff over 22,000 envelopes with our new season brochures at our Mail Outs three times a year.
But that's not all...The Foyer Club help to raise funds for the development of local theatre. To date, they have raised an incredible £66,470.98! It is with their help that The Octagon Theatre has managed to:
- Upgrade the infra-red hearing system for patrons who are hard of hearing*
- Purchase 16 Front of House radios and headsets that ensure the safety of all patrons vising the theatre
- Purchase 9 new cafe/bar sofas for our patrons' comfort
- Purchase the theatre's very own Grand Piano to avoid paying to rent a piano for all of the classical concerts throughout the year
*50% of this was generously paid for by Well Being of Yeovil.
This money was raised through various Foyer Club initiatives such as: The Buy A Key Appeal, Let Me Entertain You, Pantomime Bucket Collections, The Big Summer Bash and so many more...
The Octagon is very grateful to The Foyer Club for its tremendous contribution to the theatre.
