Your valuable support
We're sure many of you are aware that last week's Arts Council England funding announcement resulted in a disappointing cut to our funding. We wouldn't be the company we are without our loyal audiences, and now your support means more than ever. There's a range of ways you can help, from becoming a Friend or Patron, buying a seat in our new Studio Theatre or by making an individual donation. For more information call our Fundraising department on 0113 220 8000 or click the links below.
