Support Derby Theatre

Make a Donation

With the theatre currently closed and performances cancelled until further notice, we are now preparing for a significant drop in our income, to the extent that our long-term viability could very soon be compromised.

We appreciate you have lots to think about at this time, but we would be really grateful if you would consider making a donation to support Derby Theatre and its reopening.

We recognise that this time of uncertainty affects everybody differently, but if you are in a position to help us remain a vital part of the community, we would be hugely grateful.
