Your Legacy

SHARE the magic of theatre with the next generation; leave a gift in your Will.

For many, our theatre is a special place. For some, it feels like home; for others it is a place of fun and exploration; and for many it holds a lifetime of memories.

One way you can help us is to remember The Old Vic in your Will. As a registered charity, no inheritance tax is payable on the amount of your gift. So in addition to supporting us, your legacy gift could also reduce the inheritance tax liability on your estate. Anyone leaving a minimum 10% of their taxable estate to charity can qualify for a reduced rate, down from the usual 40% of taxable wealth to 36%.

Your legal advisor will be able to provide more details, and you can refer to

If you decide to leave a gift for our general purposes, you can remember us with a fixed amount or a share of the residue of your estate. We would be happy to discuss how your gift should be recognised or whether you would prefer to remain anonymous.

If you would like your gift to be directed to a specific purpose, please contact us so we can provide details and answer any of your questions. Our offices are currently closed and we are working with a skeleton staff to help ensure The Old Vic’s survival. You can email us at and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
