Individual Support

Our small auditorium, even when sold out, only provides 40% of the funding we need to operate. As a registered charity, each year we must raise at least £2m in addition to our Box Office income and Arts Council England subsidy. We are dependent on the philanthropic support of individuals in order to realise our artistic ambitions, nurture emerging artists and develop new audiences through Almeida Participation.

Almeida Participation gives people of all ages opportunities to see our productions, participate in creative projects, and have their voices heard. We work with schools, community groups and young people in Islington and our surrounding boroughs to inspire, challenge and engage, creating opportunities to increase confidence, communication and self-esteem.

Your donation will enable us to:

  • Make ambitious work which pushes artistic boundaries and has a life beyond the four walls of our theatre
  • Work with local schools to introduce young people to theatre and to support their studies in English and drama
  • Nurture the next generation of directors, creatives and writers through structured development programmes and open commissions

“I think the Resident Director Programme is absolutely brilliant and I am so grateful to the people who make it possible. You can feel yourself becoming a better director every day. I hope other young directors get to experience this.” - Ilinca Radulian, Resident Director in 2017
