What will my donation fund?
The Norwich Theatre Royal is a registered charity, broadening the range of arts available in the region, providing a wide range of disabled access and providing an extensive Education programme. Any surplus income the Theatre Royal makes is re-invested in the theatre building and our education programme.
Now we have a refurbished theatre building for the city and county to be proud of, we want to put education at the heart of what we do for generations to come. By naming a seat you can be proud of supporting the theatre and the community it serves. Your generous donation will help us maintain the theatre and expand the opportunities our young people deserve, giving more of them the benefits that creative education can bring.

“I saw my first opera at the Theatre Royal, it was Don Giovanni – it blew my socks off” Stephen Fry – Circle F1
