Individual Giving

We are proud to be Lowestoft’s not-for-profit professional theatre. Our charity number is 1149133.

We present over 500 live, screening & cinema events every single year, and run a varied programme of education and outreach initiatives where we work with thousands of people in our community.

But we can always do more - and with your help, we can.

Every donation (be it of money, or time) really does make a difference, and will help to secure our fantastic organisation for generations to come!

With your help, we want to:

  • Nurture the aspirations of young people in Lowestoft by delivering inspirational projects and events, dedicated to broadening their horizons and opening the door to exciting future careers within the creative industries.
  • Increase our support for older members of our community by delivering even more wide-ranging outreach projects and establishing the Marina as a hive of daytime activities.
  • Expand our live programme, with more drama, musical theatre and comedy.
  • Develop our building and improve facilities, guaranteeing everyone full access to our theatre activities, regardless of age or ability.

You can add a donation to your ticket order, or make a one off donation at anytime.
