Over 14 million people visit London’s West End theatres each year, and yet for so many young people living in the capital this experience is out of their reach.
Our aim is to enable them to access and engage more fully in the world-renowned theatre and Arts scene that our city has to offer, and to benefit from from their experience on both an educational and social level.
We need to raise approximately £750,000 annually to run our programmes, which benefit over 14,000 young people each year. Donations from our supporters also provide funds to develop new projects, as the needs of young people and teachers change.
If you’re able to support us by making a donation, here are some example of what your money could achieve:
£10 subsidises the cost of a ticket for a young person to attend a top West End show with their peers through our independent theatregoing club, Go Live
£25 takes a child with special needs to a Relaxed Performance, giving them a family experience to remember
£50 gives a deaf young person the chance to attend an accessible, specialist drama workshop
If you donate £100 or over you will automatically become one of our Theatre Guardians, and be invited to see our work in action.
