Being a patron means you are helping us maintain the highest quality in our programmes and keeping Eden Court at the heart of cultural life in the highlands.
In return for your generosity, we do what we can to enhance your enjoyment of the arts at Eden Court and let you know just how much your support is helping.
We will invite you to get behind the scenes, meet directors and performers and stay up to date with the latest developments at Eden Court. There will be opportunities to attend rehearsals and special events and a dedicated booking service will help ensure you get the best tickets available for the events you enjoy.
