We are a National Portfolio Organisation of Arts Council England and a Registered Charity. However, demand for our work far exceeds our funding and our activity and ambition remain high across each year. We value our Taught by an Idiot participation, community engagement and education programme on a par with our professional productions, and this work is only made possible through additional funding. We are grateful for the generosity of Trusts and Foundations and individuals who have supported us in the past and continue to work alongside us in order to help us achieve our vision of making our work accessible to all.
For more information about possible ways to invest in or support our work, please contact Jenni Grainger, Executive Director or call 0207 407 4123.
