Our Friends and Patrons scheme provides five options for supporting the company on a regular basis. Please watch the short film by our Artistic Directors to find out more. Full details of the different levels are provided below as is information about upcoming events for Friends and Patrons.

It’s quick and easy to sign up online here (BalletBoyz uses Charity Checkout to process online payments). All levels can be purchased as a gift and there’s an option to select this during the online payment process (N.B levels bought as gifts are not eligible for gift aid). You’re very welcome however to be in touch with our Development Manager, Beth with any questions (including about the suggested donation amounts and to buy a benefits only package) and she can also provide information about alternative payment options – contact details below.
