Enjoyment, Engagement, Education

We are passionate about giving as many people as possible the chance to connect with, enjoy and experience the arts, especially young people and communities who do not normally have access to the theatre. As a not-for-profit charity we rely upon the generosity of our supporters to help us in these aims, and to help renovate and maintain the fabric of our wonderful Grade II Listed building. 

Please consider a donation to support our community and education activities and help protect the theatre building for people now and in the future.

Please contact our team on 02380 711811 to donate or for more information.

  • Environmentally friendly LED lighting in our bar areas
  • Our ‘living’ archive project, celebrating the rich heritage of our theatre My Story
  • A bursary fund for our Summer Youth Project
