Support us as we plan our reopening
When we were forced to close our doors in March 2020, we were incredibly touched by the support our audience members showed us. We really appreciate the lovely messages we received, as well as the generous donations that were made.
The People's doesn't receive any public funds, so the vast majority of our revenue comes from ticket sales and we must raise any money we need for the upkeep of the building ourselves.
While the theatre was closed, we had no regular income but significant bills to pay. Once re-opened, we have needed to make changes to our building and our way of working to ensure the safety of our members, staff and audiences, in an already financially challenging environment.
As we welcome back audiences, the support of our community is more important than ever. With your help, the phoenix will rise.

If you're eligible, please remember to add Gift Aid to your donation when prompted - we'll receive an extra 25p from HMRC for every £1 you give.
Donate by direct bank transfer
You can easily set up a one-off donation, or a regular standing order, directly to our bank account. If you have online banking you can do this yourself and if not, just contact your bank who will be able to do this for you. Please email our treasurer, Kate Scott, on firstname.lastname@example.org, and she’ll email you the donation form which gives all the details you’ll need, including how to gift aid your donations.

Amazon will donate 0.5% of the total price of any purchase when you use their Amazon Smile programme, at no extra cost to you. Search for People's Theatre Arts Group in the "pick your own charitable organisation" box, and remember to use smile.amazon.co.uk rather than www.amazon.co.uk each time you shop.

Donation Policy for Gift Aid
I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations it is my responsibility to pay any difference.
I wish to apply Gift Aid and understand that the People's Theatre will receive an additional £1.25 as a result of my £5 donation - at no additional cost to me.
