We couldn’t do it without you! Yes, the lovely audiences who see our shows and everyone who contributes in any way to Swan are the backbone of our success.

To help us continue to produce the quality of work that we do, you may like to become a member of Swan. An annual donation of £25 does just that and allows you to take performing roles in all productions during the season if cast.

For businesses, advertising in our programmes is an example of how you can make a contribution to theatre in Bedford.
