This is a challenging time for the arts industry and as an independent charity we receive no regular public funding, relying on support of our audiences to deliver our life-enhancing work both on stage and through our Mayflower Engage community and education activities..

Your donation will help to support us, protect the theatre for people now and in the future.

Thank you for your continued support.
