Why not get even more out of your support for the Beacon, including priority booking and access to exclusive events, by becoming a Patron?

As a highly valued Beacon Patron, your support will help us to build a creative learning programme to ensure that the children and young people of Inverclyde have the opportunity to engage with the arts, and to help their personal and social development. By becoming a Patron, you will be lighting up lives in Inverclyde, giving young performers and artists the chance to shine.


It costs just £120 per year – you can donate in monthly instalments of £10 if you wish – to become a Beacon Patron. In appreciation of your generosity, you will receive:

  • An initial Thank You gift of a specially commissioned piece by renowned local glass artist, Alec Galloway.
  • 10% discount on 20 tickets per year, for selected performances.
  • Offers of excellent seats, set aside exclusively for Patrons, for every performance.
  • Year-round opportunities to attend exclusive rehearsals, previews and special events.
  • An invitation to the annual supporters’ event, at which we will update Patrons on what their donations have achieved and unveil future plans.
  •  Formal acknowledgement in on our website.
