Our members make incredible theatre happen in the heart of York

Many people know that York Theatre Royal is one of the region’s most successful producing theatres, not everyone knows that we are a registered charity. Our generous supporters help one of the oldest theatres in the UK continue to thrive every day.

There are many reasons why people donate to York Theatre Royal. Some are passionate about theatre and want to contribute to our artistic and creative work; others want to enable us to do more in our local community; some have special memories and want to ensure theatre can be enjoyed by generations to come; others want access to priority booking and to get the best seats for the best prices for a great night out. Whatever your reason, we are extremely grateful for your ongoing commitment and support.

By supporting your theatre you make exciting, ambitious and inspiring theatre. And you make it for everyone. Thank you.
