Sherman 5


What is Sherman 5?

Sherman 5 offers free membership and is designed to give people who have never attended a performance at Sherman Theatre the chance to do so.

Sherman 5 is open to residents of Communities First areas across Cardiff, the Vale of Glamorgan, Rhondda Cynon Taf, Bridgend and Newport and to members and gatekeepers of our partner community groups, all of which support people who face barriers and/or disadvantage.

Sherman 5 is generously supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

When you join Sherman 5, your first visit to the theatre is FREE.

Sherman 5 offers members:

  • FREE first visit to a show
  • Discounted tickets for subsequent visits: £5.00 (£2.50 for under-25s)
  • FREE transport if needed
  • A 50% discount at Sherman Theatre's Café Bar
  • Exclusive FREE Sherman 5 activities and events
  • The opportunity to join as a Sherman 5 Rep to experience working in a theatre and the chance to earn Time Credits

If you have any questions, please contact Guy O'Donnell, Sherman 5 Coordinator: 07703 729079 |

Sherman 5 works in collaboration with a range of charities, third sector organisations and volunteers to host activities for the benefit of its audiences and the wider community:


It means a great deal to everyone at Sherman Theatre to have welcomed so many new attenders through Sherman 5. We hope that as many Sherman 5 members continue to enjoy future performances at Sherman Theatre this summer and autumn.

Although the five years of funding from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation which has made Sherman 5 possible will come to an end after the final performance of Na, Nel! on 17 July, we are delighted to confirm that we will continue to offer limited tickets for existing members to selected performances this autumn. It is really important to us that given the fact that so many Sherman 5 members have become theatre fans, they will still have the opportunity to see exceptional theatre throughout the remainder of 2018.

Existing members can either buy tickets for £5 (adults) or £2.50 (under-25s) or use Time Credits for the following performances:
