THE HAMPSTEAD 2021 APPEAL
THANK YOU FOR HELPING HAMPSTEAD THRIVE IN 2021 AND BEYOND
It's been a joy to welcome audiences back and to return to what we love most - entertaining and inspiring audiences, investing in the art and artists of the future, supporting our local community and bringing people together through the magic of live theatre.
In early 2021 we launched The Hampstead 2021 Appeal to raise additional funds to support our artists, audiences and community through and beyond this crisis.
Thanks to the incredible generosity of our Board members, Patrons, Friends, Supporters and ticket bookers, and with match-funding from the AKO Foundation as part of The 2020 Fund, we've reached our target and raised over £160,000 to sustain and expand our work on and off stage, for artists and audiences, in 2021 and beyond. Thank you for making this happen.
The Appeal is now closed, yet as we look to the future, your help is still vital. Find out more below about getting involved with Hampstead Theatre by becoming a Friend or a Patron, or make a donation to help Hampstead move forwards and bring you original, entertaining theatre long into the future. Thank you.
