Friends of Skipton Town Hall

The purpose of our Friends group is to provide a place where you can:

  • Meet new people
  • Do things you enjoy
  • Gain qualifications and volunteering experience.

For a reasonable membership fee, Friends will benefit from:

  • Advance notice of events happening in Skipton Town Hall and priority ticket booking
  • Friends e-newsletter three times a year
  • Friends only events twice a year
  • Discounts on some Skipton Town Hall events and performances
  • 10% discount in the Skipton Town Hall shop

For the time being, Young Friends (under 18) will receive all of these benefits free of charge once they have registered. We see the partnership with Friends of every age to be very important for Skipton Town Hall to thrive.

We hope that our Friends will also be advocates for the Town Hall.
