Support Us


Your Contribution makes all the difference

We’re a charity and with your vital support we make incredible things happen.

We are recognised nationally for our work with our community and especially with and for young people in our city and region. From large-scale community theatre and our legendary pantomime, to supporting the next generation of artists and ensuring everyone, regardless of their circumstances, can access and take part in York’s cultural life.

To ensure there continues to be a thriving theatre in our city for everyone to enjoy, we need your continued support.

Corporates and Foundations

Be part of our rich heritage

A theatre has been operating on this site in York since 1744, but we are not a museum. Help us to continue to thrive in modern times, ensure we are relevant and progressive and make our city proud.

Gift In Will

Leave a lasting legacy

Remember York Theatre Royal in your will. Small or large, every gift left to the theatre will make a vital contribution to our work and our building for future generations to enjoy.
