Help Us Open the Doors to Theatre

There are over 14 million attendances to London’s West End theatres each year and yet for so many young people this is an experience out of their reach.  Our aim is to enable them to participate more fully in the exceptional cultural life of our capital city; it has the world’s greatest arts offering and yet so often excludes the very people that call it home.

“Thank you for enabling my family to enjoy a world that I could never have afforded them to enter.  You have enriched their imagination and lives and instilled in them the love of live theatre that will stay with them all their lives.” Mother, Westminster

You can help children and young people to experience the magic of theatre who would not otherwise have this opportunity by making a donation today.  Please CLICK HERE to see the ways you can donate.


We raise approximately £700,000 annually to run all the programmes you can read about on this website and reach 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. 

Perhaps your place of work has a community fund or charitable trust? Please visit our Corporate Engagement page for examples of our corporate partnerships.

We work with a range of grant-giving trusts supporting young people, education, the arts and social/community projects. To view some of our current funding needs, please visit the Trusts page.  

“The show was fantastic. It inspired me to follow my dreams. I loved it so much, thank you very much.” Tyler, aged 15
