While many people know that New Perspectives is the region's leading touring theatre company, not many know that it is also a registered charity (number 1058309). Meeting our costs for touring shows created to engage widespread communities, including those with limited access to the arts, while maintaining low ticket prices, coupled with producing original and exciting work and inspiring emerging region-wide talent is a real challenge for a small company. Our public funding amounts to only 70% of the annual income so we need to raise vital funds to sustain and grow our work.

You can make a vital contribution by:

Making a donation
