Why Support Us?

We receive just 7% core public funding

Each day at Alnwick Playhouse, we welcome hundreds of people from the local area through the front doors. They might be attending a performance, buying tickets, singing in the choir, meeting friends at the café, or with their school, learning how to operate a lighting rig or putting on a show.

Their destination is the common denominator, and our vision is for Alnwick Playhouse, already a hub for high quality artistic performance and community arts, to continue to grow, to provide more arts for the wider community, inspiring and entertaining many generations to come.

We can’t do this without your help. We receive just 7% regular public funding every year – leaving a huge 93% of our running costs to be found from ticket income, food and drink sales, and you! Please give generously, your assistance really is appreciated and necessary.
