Since we opened our doors under Kevin Spacey’s Artistic Directorship in 2004, we have attracted over a million people into the theatre. But ticket sales alone are not enough to pay for our broad spectrum of work and the upkeep of our historic building. The Old Vic Trust receives no government subsidy and each year we need to raise £2.7 million. Any surplus made from productions by the Theatre Company are invested back in the Trust.
Through our dynamic education programme Old Vic New Voices, we support young actors, directors, writers and producers to learn their craft; we invest in groundbreaking programmes in schools to raise aspiration among young people; and we use theatre skills to work with charities and local organisations to enable those in the community to participate in what we do. Thousands of local people have taken advantage of our £5 ticket offers and we also offer 100 seats at £12 to the under 25′s for every performance. By supporting The Old Vic, you will ensure we can continue this important work and present world class theatre in our iconic building.
