Fees are now easier, quicker and better for everyone.
No more trying to keep track of three or more different payments to be made along with whatever else!
Before we tell you more – please be aware there has been no increases in the fees we charged compared from previous projects when looking at amount of rehearsals involved etc. We are committed to making Project Theatre accessible and affordable and these changes are focused on how payments are collected not how much we charge.
When taking into consideration costume costs and value for money compared with most other similar companies we are very affordable and many other performance and other opportunities are included and offered free or at reduced rates.
We have now combined:
the Annual Membership Fee £20
the total number of £2 Weekly Fees for all rehearsals (including some Sundays for Youth Theatre) for January – December
and usual Show / Costume Fee £10
These fees altogether calculate to £12 per month (£10 for Inov8 Dance) and will be a maximum of £144 per member for the year.
Please note: There is currently no set fees plans for Collective or Summer Drama and there is a family discount for those with more than one child taking part in both Youth Theatre & Inov8 detailed further on.
Paying in instalments
Fees can be paid in instalments:
£12 each month for 12 months (January – December) for Youth Theatre
£10 each month for 12 months (January – December) for Inov8 Dance
Please remember this total may seem a large amount but weekly fees have not increased. This is simply combined everything that we have charged previously to make it easier to record and less hassle for you as you no longer have to remember £2 every week or be chased up for outstanding payments as well as paying for t-shirts, tickets, programme good luck messages etc. also. This also reduces paperwork for our volunteers at Front desk and improves record keeping which is required for us to do as a Charity.
*Please note: for members joining from May Fees will be reduced accordingly.
How and when do I pay
You can set up a Standing Order or transfer money yourself each month by BACS online bank transfer.
Payments will be required by the 10th of every month.
As Youth Theatre is starting on 10th of the month for January if you are not able to make first payment on 10th we require first £12 instalment to be paid by 24th January. Inov8 instalment can be made on 10th January.
Paying in full or fewer instalments
Please note if you wish you can also pay the full yearly amount in January or in fewer instalments if you wish. Please just make sure to notify us of this in advance so we don't chase you up when we don't see your monthly instalment there!
Paying in cash in person at rehearsals
If you are not able to set up Standing Order or other online banking arrangement and would like to pay in cash in person temporarily at rehearsals please let us know and you may still be able to pay by the second Wednesday of each month at front desk at rehearsals. Please note this can only be done at the start of rehearsals not at the end. Receipts will be available.
Projects discount - Youth Theatre & Inov8
If you have more than one child in both Youth Theatre and Inov8 you will receive a discount of 50% on your total costs of Inov8 for the second, third child etc.
Joining after January
The membership is open to new members from January – March to join on first Wednesday of every month.
Due to the monthly payment system if you do not join in January at our start date of 10th January you will not be charged backdated fees and you will not be charged more weekly fees more than from you signed up.

What happens if I leave and cancel my membership
If for whatever reason you no longer take part in Project Theatre you simply cancel your Direct debit for the next monthly payment instalment. If you leave after the 10th of a month and therefore the instalment has been paid this will not be refunded.
What happens if I don’t / can't pay
If for whatever reason payment isn’t made by 10th of the month either because you forgot, were absent from rehearsals or online bank arrangements failed we will give you until the next instalment month to pay both. If you are aware of non-payment you must let us know.
We cannot allow fees to run over after the next month instalment date unfortunately without notice and this may affect your participation in the current project and membership of the company.
We have arranged this system to hopefully help allow you to budget easier in advance and pay automatically through online banking. If you are experiencing financial hardship please let us know confidentially as soon as possible and we can arrange different instalments and payment plans.
