Amateur Players of Sherborne is a registered charity (Charity No: 1144869). Our income comes mainly from membership subcriptions and the profits we make on our productions. However, we are a relatively small society and the Sherborne Studio Theatre has a small capacity compared to most theatres, so our income is limited. We are constantly faced with the need to maintain the theatre and are always seeking ways of improving our facilities and systems. These financial challenges can often only be met with additional income. You can help in any of the ways shown below, and your support will be much appreciated.

You can support us at any time by making a donation, which will be gratefully received. Please contact the Treasurer if you would like to donate.

You can also support us by joining the Sherborne Studio Theatre 100 club. This takes the form of a lottery, but it is limited to only 100 people. As a member of the club (you do not have to be a member of APS) you pay £5 a month. Every two months you have a chance of winning up to £100 and once a year there is a draw for a prize of up to £600. This is your chance to help to secure the future of the Sherborne Studio Theatre and APS, and to give yourself the chance of winning some significant cash prizes.

How it works

  • There will be a maximum of 100 membership tickets available to be purchased.
  • A membership ticket costs £5 per month, payable by standing order.
  • Any person may purchase as many tickets as they wish, but no more than 100 will be sold in total.
  • Six times a year, a draw will be made and one ticket will win 10% of the money invested over the previous two months, up to a maximum prize of £100.
  • In addition, once a year, one ticket will win 10% of the annual investment, up to a maximum prize of £600.

So, if you buy one ticket, your annual expenditure will be £60.  Assuming all 100 tickets have been sold, you will have six chances each year of winning £100, and one chance of winning £600. Of course, if fewer than 100 membership tickets have been sold, the prizes will be smaller, but your chances of winning will increase.
