From the hundreds of young people who attend our Youth Theatre each week and the under fives who attend our children’s activities to the generations of families who come to panto each and every year, we know that the work of York Theatre Royal is important to so many people. We are working hard to ensure that we are able to continue our work, and also to expand it and reach more of our community.

We would not be able to continue this work without the support of our loyal audience members, many of whom have been coming to York Theatre Royal for most of their lives.

Donations to York Theatre Royal enable us to continue to produce great plays, run our education and outreach projects and keep our building running. Donations to York Theatre Royal come in many forms - from bucket collections after shows to a regular gift through the 1744 Club. It is also possible to leave a gift in your Will to York Theatre Royal.

Charitable legacies are the foundation of many good causes in the UK and are vital in continuing their work. 74% of the UK population support charities, and when asked, 35% of people say they would be happy to leave a gift in their Will once family and friends had been provided for.

Have you ever considered leaving a gift in your Will to York Theatre Royal?

Anyony can leave a gift in their Will and this special and personal gift can be of any size and support any aspect of our work. You can either leave a specific sum of money or a proportion of your estate once family and friends have been cared for. Leaving a gift in your Will is also an important tax effective device, which can benefit you and your heirs.

Whether you would like to support new productions, our education and outreach programme or simply want to ensure audiences can enjoy our work for years to come, leaving a gift in your Will is a relatively simple process, and would mean so much to all who enjoy our Theatre. Speak to your solicitor or professional advisor about including a gift in your Will.

If you do decide to leave a gift to York Theatre Royal we would like to thank you and bring you into the Theatre so you can meet some of the people you are helping and enjoy the productions we create.
