We love bringing you fantastic shows, from brand new work to the big name favourites, and strive to offer these at affordable prices. We do not receive any regular funding so the generosity of our community is what keeps us going.
Ways to support!
There are loads of ways you can help us to continue bringing you fantastic shows and supporting local artists and our community. Here are just a few.
Where your money goes
We believe theatre is for everyone, and pathways into theatre should be as open and accessible as possible. Events Lab is a theatre training programme for vulnerable young people with complex needs who thrive in non-traditional educational environments. We teach them everything, from lighting and sound to event management and customer service, all with the support of our professional team and at their own pace. Your support helps us to engage with more and more young people, and offer them bigger and better opportunities that help get them into work.
All the big names have to start out somewhere, and we are passionate about being that place. From up and coming comedians, to local creatives with exciting stories to tell, we want to be the place that gives them the opportunity to grow, experiment and find their voice. Your support helps us to offer more opportunities and continue to be a platform for new talent.
Children and Young People
You might not know but we are owned by YMCA Leicestershire, a charity supporting young people experiencing homelessness. We offer them a safe place to call home, support them through the difficult times, and equip them with the skills to get into work or education. Your support can create lasting change in their lives, whether that’s through funding our Skills for Change programme, or providing the basic necessities for their first independent home, setting them on a strong path for the future
