AND ENSURE A BRIGHT FUTURE FOR HAMPSTEAD
For over 60 years, Hampstead Theatre has been at the forefront of British Theatre as a home for new writing and original voices.
Today, one year after Arts Council England announced a 100% cut to our funding, we are determined to move forwards with the same mission. To challenge, influence and shape the future of theatre. We will continue to produce ambitious new plays, champion emerging writers, and bring audiences together through inspiring, original theatre.
With artists, audiences and donors alongside us, Hampstead is moving ahead. And it is thanks to you.
As we now rely only on ticket sales and Philanthropy, we have launched #HampsteadAhead, a campaign to raise £1.25m to underpin our core work and provide a rock-solid foundation for future years.
Over £1m has already been raised, thanks to the generosity of our Patrons, Major Donors and Board. We know there are many calls on your giving at this time, but if you can, please donate to #HampsteadAhead to ensure a bright future for Hampstead Theatre.
Find out more below or make a donation now, whatever the size, to help us move ahead. Thank you.
