Supporting Hope Mill theatre

How You Can Help

Hope Mill Theatre was born out of grassroots ambition, and the support we receive from audiences, friends and supporters enables us to continue to deliver high quality independent theatre, as well as nurture new artistic talent, here in Manchester.

We could not have come this far or achieved all we have without vital support and, excitingly, it’s only just the beginning.

From the generosity of individuals, trusts, communities and corporate partners, there are many ways you can get involved and make a direct and significant impact on Hope Mill Theatre’s future.

One-off donations of any size can provide the much-needed support for a range of activities across the theatre. From providing financial support for a young person to attend our theatre school, to creating opportunities for the next generation of upcoming play writers, or supporting a theatre workshop for a local primary school, a single donation can have a big impact!
