The 400 Club


Established in 1985, the 400 Club has over the years raised in excess of £40,000 for the community owned Centre. In return for an annual payment of £12 – or only £1 per month – your number will be placed in a monthly draw where you could win one of several cash prizes.


Joining the club is easy – all you need to do is download our application form and return it to the Centre. We will do the rest and you never know you could be receiving a cheque for £25 after the next draw. ‘Good Luck & Thank you’

Seating Appeal


Festival Drayton Centre Seating Appeal


You can play a role in the success of Festival Drayton Centre by naming one of the seats in our stunning auditorium. Over 150 seats have already been named and each plaque tells a different story. All sorts of people have supported us in this way from families and groups of friends to private individuals, businesses or community groups. 



Everyone has a different reason, such as remembering a loved one, commemorating a special occasion or as a tribute to the theatre. They also make the perfect surprise gift! 


For just £250, a personalised plaque, engraved with your chosen inscription of up to 10 words will be attached to one of our Auditorium seats for the life of the seating unit.


If you would like to contribute to the ‘sea of plaques’ that powerfully embellish our stunning auditorium, visit the centre or email your interest using the button below. Thank you!
