The Actors Centre

Industry Membership

As well as our Actor Membership, we have other membership types available for those working in the industry.


Associate Membership [£40 per 12 months] 

For writers, producers, directors and other industry related professionals wishing to enjoy all the benefits of being a member plus the chance to access the Tristan Bates Theatre and our professional development programme as an observer. 

General observation bookings can be made from our programme where a workshop has an Associate Member tag (see programme). To observe workshops that do not have an Associate Member tag when listed in the programme please contact the Membership Department for availability/price details.

We accept applications for Associate Membership from members of Equity or affiliated unions (e.g. Equity, BECTU, CDG, WGGB, Directors Guild) or from anyone working in the industry who has been nominated by a member or a workshop leader, or whose CV is evident of their career.
