Artist Membership: Troop

Are you based in Cambridge or the East of England and involved in making contemporary theatre, dance, live art, spoken word, circus, cabaret or something in between?

You don’t need to be professional, we just ask that you’re taking what you’re doing seriously.

Troop is our Artist Membership scheme for performance makers living and working in the region, with benefits and opportunities designed to build the community of artists and support the quality of work being produced regionally, and to help develop the local scene.

Membership costs £20 for a year and gives the following benefits:

  • Two free tickets to any show in the Theatre & Dance season per year (subject to availability)
  • No booking fees
  • Priority booking (where applicable)
  • One to one advisory sessions with our Artist Development Producer including support in writing funding applications.
  • A discount on Creative Masterclasses
  • Opportunity to apply for residencies, scratch events and creative intensives
  • Invitations to regular networking events with other artist members

How do I join? 

Email Catherine Willmore, our Artist Development Producer. If you’re eligible, we’ll email you back with details on how to pay to officially become a member and receive your benefits!

Troop on Facebook
We also facilitate a Facebook group for shared news, information and discussion among East region theatre makers. It’s free to join – you don’t have to be a member, just send a friend request to Troop @ Cambridge Junction.

* When you sign up to Autorenew you will receive as a thankyou gift, a Cambridge Junction canvas bag, badge and a copy of a brand new factsheet on how to fundraise from Trusts and Foundations as an independent artist. Researched and compiled by our development manager Clare O’Hara especially for Troop members, it contains a wealth of local and national sources of funding which can offer support to independent artists.
