Trusts and Foundations
"The arts in general, and new writing in particular, provide fantastic opportunities for young people who haven’t had the chance to develop their potential. Taking part in creative projects can help young people discover unknown talents, learn new skills and grow in confidence; the arts can and does change lives. Live Theatre is at the forefront of such work and we are delighted to support their inspirational projects which demonstrably improve so many futures."
James Ramsbotham, Trustee, The Gillian Dickinson Trust
Live Theatre delivers the largest free education and outreach drama programme in the city.
We are committed to open access and strive for our work to be representative of the city’s diverse population. All the company’s education and outreach work is delivered free of charge to encourage access for all and ensure income is not a barrier to taking part. This policy is made possible through the generosity of the many trusts and foundations that support the company’s programme of innovative projects.
Live Theatre is a registered charity, (number 513771).
"As a family business, we’re committed to play our part in supporting the communities in which we operate"
