Six ways to support theatre

null

Over a year of closure has left many theatres dangerously far into their financial reserves (which will have been carefully built up over the course of many years), if they haven’t been completely wiped out already. They need all the help they can get to get to reopening: here are six ways to help support theatres.

1. SUPPORT WHILE YOU SHOP

Cost: free 

AmazonSmile and easyfundraising generate donations as you shop online at no additional cost to you. It’s a really quick and easy change to your online shopping that can generate a huge amount of support.

2. BE A SOCIAL AMBASSADOR

Cost: free

Letting your social networks know about what your favourite theatres are doing is invaluable. Sending recommendations to friends and colleagues to encourage them to book tickets, reposting, retweeting, sharing, tagging people in comments goes such a long way in helping theatres demonstrate why their work is so important

3. BOOK A TICKET

Cost: Tickets from £10 (and you only need to book one ticket, even if you plan on watching on the same screen as a group)

OLD VIC: IN CAMERA

Even though our buildings are still closed, theatres continue to find ways to share theatre with their audiences. Our OLD VIC: IN CAMERA series brings live theatre directly into your home using Zoom – you’re watching the performers live from The Old Vic stage as it happens along with thousands of other people across the world.

4. MAKE A DONATION

Cost: whatever you’re able to give

If you find yourself with some leftover cash at the end of the month or you’d like to round up the cost of a ticket you’re buying, you can make a one-off donation on our website at any time and for any amount.

5. BECOME A MEMBER

Cost: from £65 for the year (£5.42 per month) paid annually

Signing up to a theatre Membership scheme not only plays a big part in supporting theatres, it also comes with a whole host of perks, from priority booking to behind the scenes insights and events.

6. CORPORATE SUPPORT

Cost: bespoke to your business 

If you work for a company that has a Corporate Support team or has the ability to work in partnership with other organisations, theatres can generate some excellent opportunities to engage the entire workforce and get your brand to a great audience-base. These packages are tailor-made to your organisation and can have a profound impact on education and access to the arts.
