HELP US TO ENSURE THAT WE CAN RE-OPEN ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS CRISIS

The closure of theatres in the UK puts York Theatre Royal, along with hundreds of other theatres, into a critical situation. It’s with enormous sadness that we take these measures, but the safety of our audiences, staff and community is of utmost importance. As a charity, your support is crucial to our survival. We will do everything we can to support our ecosystem of artists, staff, partners and community, many of whom are freelance, during this unprecedented time.

York Theatre Royal has faced many difficult times during it’s 275 years of existence – including two World Wars, recessions and funding cuts. We are now facing another challenge, one which not only jeopardises the future of our theatre, but will have an impact on our beloved industry for years to come. However, the building still stands strong, just like the community it belongs to. We are determinted to be still standing strong in 275 years’ time, thanks to the support and generosity of our audiences, community and Members.

Now, in this time of difficulty, we are trying to be what our artists, communities, city, country and world need us to be at this moment. We will do our little bit, whatever it is, because all the little bits add up.

This crisis has profound effects for us as a charity. We are heavily reliant on ticket sale revenue and donations to operate​, with only a small percentage of our overall income coming from government funding.

Each and every penny counts for us right now, and if you are able to support us during this time, any donation, large or small, will make a huge difference.

Help us to ensure that York Theatre Royal can be here on the other side of this crisis to bring communities together again. Thank you.
