Trusts and Foundations

Trusts and Foundations supporting Northern Stage


The support we receive from trusts and foundations is vital and helps ensure Northern Stage continues to deliver the very best theatre and community projects.

We believe that every individual has enormous creative potential and that drama can be used as a vehicle for social change. Northern Stage provides opportunities for everyone at whatever stage of their life, and wherever they come from, to explore, develop and realise that potential.

Every year we work with over 5000 people of all ages and, through a variety of community initiatives and one-off projects, create opportunities for individuals to discover their own creativity, develop skills and increase their confidence.

Funding from Trusts and Foundations help us to plan for the future and ensure we continue to deliver the very best theatre and community projects for people from all walks of life.
