We are launching an Appeal this year to raise £20,000 – We hope that you will be able to support our Appeal which will raise essential funds towards costs for the rehearsal period in May, as well as continuing to:
Support hundreds of young actors and freelancers, many at the very start of their careers, with rare opportunities to work alongside our established, professional Company. We work with up to 40 actors, directors, technicians, designers, stage management and freelance creatives each year.
Enable scores of young people and adults to experience our expert Education Programme and unique season workshops. Last year in Bristol we offered 23 Saturday Morning Workshops; we delivered free workshops to 150 primary school children and many more on tour.
Strengthen and expand our relationships with a growing number of schools and universities in Bristol and across the UK. In 2017 we delivered workshops to over 200 university and school students in the South West.
Secure our future ensuring that we continue to offer critically acclaimed, high-quality, large-cast, professional theatre productions to a diversity of people and particularly the young.
You can also donate by cheque made payable to: ‘Shakespeare at The Tobacco Factory’, and send to; Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory, Tobacco Factory, Raleigh Road, Bristol BS3 1TF
We’re passionate about the impact that the Company has, and the opportunities we create, for so many people who engage with us in a variety of ways. We are fundraising to ensure that these elements of our charitable activities, along with our acclaimed productions, continue to thrive as we deliver an exciting, newly shaped performance schedule. We greatly appreciate your continued support of the Company, we never take this for granted, but we hope that you can consider making an additional donation at this crucial time. Thank you.

‘stf has never received any form of public subsidy; and in the present financial climate funds from commercial sponsors and charitable trusts are ever more difficult to find. So the support of individuals is critical to our survival. We have therefore launched an ongoing Big Give appeal to raise vital funds to help to secure our work into the future.’
