As The Theatre heads into a worrying period of closure, almost all of our income ceases. We receive crucial public authority funding, but this makes up just a few percent of what we need to survive.

Would you consider making a donation to help support The Theatre and its staff through a challenging few months and keep this gorgeous institution safe for generations to come.

Here are just a few of the wonderful messages of support we have received:


'We took my daughter, aged three, to the panto and when I asked if she was enjoying it, she replied, ‘Yes I am, but how do you get up there?’, pointing at the stage. 

As soon as she could, she joined Youth Theatre, which she attended until the age of 18. During that time she was a Pippin three times with Tamara as well as working as an usher and then in the box office. She also later worked in the bar before being asked to understudy for the panto prior to going to university to study Performing Arts. She now lives in New York, directing in film and theatre as well as mentoring young actors. 

She always says that none of this would have been possible without the The Theatre, so thank you all so much, and good luck for the future.'


'Keep on going, we need you!'


We are pleased to acknowledge the support of Arts Council England Emergency Funding alongside the many Trusts, individuals and companies that continue to suppor the theatre.
