For some time, the Friends have been developing a mailing list to enable communication by email.  Although you may have provided an email address at the time of joining, data protection rules mean that we are unable to add you automatically to our emailing list so we are asking you to sign up below.

There are obviously huge benefits to everyone in this method of communication:  it is free and it is instantaneous – which means when there is something to tell you about what is happening in the Theatre, any special deals offered to us,  or something to bring to your attention socially between the regular Park Scene publications, we can do so.

To ensure that we work within the rules, we are using an organisation called MailChimp, who provide a free, personal newsletter service. MailChimp is a long-established email marketing service provider with 7 million users worldwide that collectively send over 10 billion emails through the service each month.  Please be assured that neither The Friends nor MailChimp will ever share your details with any other organisation except Eastbourne Theatres in order for our members to qualify for the Friends’ discount.

We have recently updated our Data Protection Policy to ensure that we comply with the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) that came into force on 25 May 2018.  To view this policy, please click here

The registration process is very straightforward:

  • Enter your email address, name, and membership number in the boxes below
  • Press the ‘Subscribe’ button and you will be taken to MailChimp’s confirmation page.
  • You will be prompted to check your email inbox for an email from MailChimp.
    (Please remember to check your ‘Spam’ folder too!)
  • Click the confirmation link in that email to verify.
    This is a very important part of the process, as it confirms that you are a genuine subscriber!
  • You will be taken to a page which confirms your registration is complete.

To ensure that future emails from us do not find their way into your spam folder, please add email hidden; JavaScript is required to your Contacts.

Should you have any concerns about how your data will be managed, please refer to MailChimp’s privacy policy

 We hope you will find the registration process easy, but should you encounter any difficulties please email email hidden; JavaScript is required and we will do our best to resolve them.
