Help us transform our patio garden area into a brand new, all-year-round garden and multi-functional space with an outdoor café and performance areas.

Exciting plans are now underway to redesign the patio area into an accessible and attractive outdoor space for our community, theatre audiences and customers. The current patio area at York Theatre Royal is tired and underutilised. The area is currently only accessible by steps, making it not very accessible to wheelchair users or buggies, so included in the plans is an accessible wheelchair ramp.

Our aim is to create a versatile garden and patio area that is a family friendly space and that is an extension of the theatre café. The new design will create an adaptable and multifunctional area for other activities, including a performance space with staging and lighting, additional seating, a children’s play area and we want it to be an attractive all year round destination garden.

We are working with Lizzie Tulip Garden Design, who are a specialist design consultancy renowned for creating beautiful, stylish gardens. The project will be finished by March 2019 and to officially open to the public in April 2019.

But to make this a reality, we need your help! With a fundraising target of £50,000, your donation will be gratefully received. You can donate via our website, when booking your next ticket to see a show, via the donation boxes in the foyer and café areas or by clicking HERE.
