What does Funky Llama do?

During the Coronavirus pandemic, we ran 40 regular “Lockdown Llama” online workshops which gave disabled adults a chance to stay connected and take part in a different activity such as theatre, movement and puppetry during the lockdown.

37 people took part in our Lockdown Llama online workshops during the Coronavirus pandemic

Following relaxing of restrictions, we set up in-person Creative Hubs at two of our partner day services. We delivered 8 sessions and then when restrictions were tightened again, we continued online and delivered 60 sessions with 24 people per term.

15 people are part of our Funky Llama Steering Group, leading the direction of Funky Llama, creating new ideas for Funky Llama Socials and providing access support and guidance across TRP. We continued to run our Funky Llama Steering Group online for 63 sessions with 11 Steering Groups Members attending.

114 Funky Llama Members, who receive regular newsletters, access to creative groups and discounted tickets for selected shows.

In 2020 we sent 104 Funky Llama care packages containing a personal postcard and some craft materials for three fun creative challenges to keep Funky Llama participants engaged and connected.

In January 2021 we ran our first online Funky Llama Club Night which reached over 600 people from across the world. This gave people access to a fun and accessible club night experience from their own homes during the third lockdown.

TRP Membership FAQs

Why should I join as a TRP Member?

The support of our members means the world to us! By supporting us as a TRP Member, you’re helping us to keep arts thriving in the South West through our work on stage, with local emerging artists and with some of the most vulnerable people in our local community.

By joining as a TRP Member you’ll also unlock exclusive membership benefits which include priority booking, ticket discounts, access to events and behind the scenes news. Membership starts at £20 per year.

Yes you can! Please give our Box Office team a call on 01752 267222 and we will check your membership, process an upgrade for you and take payment for the upgrade.

Why have you made changes to your Memberships?

This last year has shown us how much we need the support of our Members and we want to give more people the opportunity to join as a Member by offering new levels. We have had to make some changes across TRP as a result of the pandemic and therefore some of the original membership benefits have had to change.

I've just joined/renewed my Membership at the start of July. What's happened with my Membership?

Your membership will run for a full twelve months as normal, so it will expire at the end of June 2022. If you wanted to get additional membership benefits you can upgrade to another membership level for a discounted price by calling us on 01752 267222.

Yes, all TRP Members get access to new shows before the general public allowing you to skip the queue and book your favourite seats at the best price. Priority booking varies depending on your Membership level.

How do I know when my priority booking periods are?

When you join as a TRP Member, you will receive on sale announcements which will clearly outline when new shows go on sale and the periods of priority booking for your membership level. During the priority booking periods, the different dates will also be clearly indicated on the season pages for each on sale and on the individual show pages on our What’s On sections of our website.

How do I access the discount at local restaurants and cafes?
