New initiative aims to make theatre a regular and accessible part of people’s lives
Cambridge’s Mumford Theatre has launched a new membership scheme that aims to offer a packed programme of professional theatre at affordable prices.
Situated in the heart of Anglia Ruskin University’s Cambridge campus, the Mumford Theatre presents a range of touring professional, local community and student theatre, as well as music concerts.
The new scheme, called Mumford Friends Membership, costs £25 per year and allows members to purchase up to two tickets for the majority of performances at just £5 each.
Theatre Manager, Richard Purkiss, explained:
The new Mumford Friends Membership scheme coincides with the launch of a new ticketing system. The Spektrix online booking system is already used by a number of arts organisations, including venues such as the Royal Court and Bristol Old Vic.

The Mumford’s programme includes a mix of well-known classics and more modern work. Amongst the upcoming shows are productions of Oscar Wilde’s Lady Windermere’s Fan, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and a new classical contemporary programme by the Joss Arnott Dance company.
