Join Us

If you are interested in going to the theatre, performing in the theatre, researching and writing about theatre memorabilia, or supporting live theatre in general, do think about joining us. We are a friendly, relaxed and approachable group. We try to have some fun as we work towards our goals.

You can join CTF as a full member, as a member of the archive group only, or contribute occasional help with a specific event or fund raising activity. If you are so inclined, you can contribute a 'talk' or 'performance' or 'activity' to one of our 'In Conversation' sessions. 

One of our principal areas of endeavour is fundraising. To date, we have  put on concerts, a fashion show, fun runs, quiz challenges and Xmas fairs.   

The major effort we make every year is our Christmas raffle. We sell these tickets during the Pantomime season and we are always on the look out for extra volunteers to help us.

Fundraising – £46,000 has been secured in 8 years.

Heartfelt thanks to all who have contributed.
