Trusts & Foundations

We are grateful to the many amazing past & present Trusts & Foundations who make our artistic, educational, community & outreach programmes possible. We are always interested to meet new Trusts & Foundations to see how we might help you deliver your mission through our work on & off the stage.

 

Artistic Programme

We have a long history of high quality theatre and now, lead by our ward-winning Artistic Director Rachel O’Riordan, a programme of brave new adaptations of classics and stories that reflect our multicultural community. We need support so our incredibly talented creative teams can produce beautiful, challenging and inspiring theatre for everyone to enjoy. We are passionate about making theatre accessible to all and would love to hear from any funders who would who share this ambition.

 

Young Lyric programme

Trusts and foundations help us to support the most vulnerable and disadvantaged young people in our community, platform and nurture the next generation of talent, ensure that all children have access to arts education, and to stage bold productions written, directed and performed by young people from West London.

We support young people who are at risk of dropping out of education, NEET (not in education, employment or training), young offenders, and those who identify as disabled, through targeted programmes which use creative drama training to provide key skills development.

We are sector leaders in arts education, supporting the next generation through partnerships with local schools, open access classes across multiple art forms, and professional training programmes. We provide opportunities for accessible and low cost training to propel those from non-traditional theatre backgrounds into successful careers on stage.
