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 60% of the annual income so we need to raise vital funds to sustain our work. That's why contributions from generous individuals, trusts and foundations, businesses and statutory sources plays a vital role. All the money given, raised or earned is not distributed as profit but reinvested in the imaginative work we do.
Whether you're a theatre-lover, rural champion or would like support access to, and participation in, the arts across the region, New Perspectives is the key to exciting, inspiring and entertaining theatre from around the globe. By making a donation to one of the New Perspectives annual programmes, your generous support will make a vital contribution to our work with emerging theatre makers and touring plays to rural and urban settings.
