2017 Liverpool Improvathon

Help fund the 2017 Liverpool Improvathon, our annual fundraiser

We did it!

On 9th May 2017 we successfully raised £2,021 of £1,400 target with 69 supporters in 35 days

New stretch target

Our first target, although amazing to reach, is the bare minimum that we need to put on this mammoth event.   With the extra money we would not only be able to cover costs more comfortably but would:

  • Secure the future of the Liverpool Annual Improvathon
  • Ultimately allow Impropriety to expand our outreach work

As a not for profit Community Interest Company we are committed to giving back to the comunity as much as we can.   This stretch target would make our goal be a lot less further away.

On May 13th and 14th, Impropriety present their 8th annual Improvathon: THE SPACE AGE!

Featuring Liverpool favourites and exciting guests, the Liverpool Improvathon brings together some of the best improvisers and musicians from around the world. The annual theatrical comedy marathon this year will be set in space, and be a staggering 2017 minutes long. That's a whopping 33 hours and 37 minute live, improvised soap opera! This comedic feat is the theatrical equivalent of binge watching a 17 episode box-set, never to be seen again!

For the last 7 years, the Improvathon has not only covered its own costs but has also acted as a fundraiser to pay for much of the creative community work we do with schools and local children, including last years Schools Improvageddon. This year however we face a substantial and unavoidable rise in costs that jeopardises not only the event itself, but also much of our work with young people during the year. 

The Improvathon format was created in 1993 by improv theatre company DieNasty in Canada, as a fundraiser for their theatre.  The Annual Liverpool Improvathon has quickly established itself as a staple of the improv calendar and regularly attracts both UK and international performers to its doors.

The Liverpool Improvathon started life in the much missed creative venue The Kazimier but last year moved to an exciting new home, The Invisible Wind Factory, in Liverpool's North Docks. This venue brings with it potential to grow the Improvathon into a bigger show, but also brings bigger financial and creative challenges for our company.

Impropriety is a not for profit CIC (community interest company), and as such any profits raised from events have always been invested in future projects.Photo by Mark Dawson Photography In the current economic climate, arts budgets in all schools are facing huge cuts, so Impropriety uses the annual Improvathon to fundraise money to subsidise workshops and projects in local schools.

Improvisation is an increasingly valued tool in education, teaching a wide variety of skills including listening, team work, confidence building, public speaking and problem solving. Funds raised from the annual Improvathon makes the work we do accessible for as many local young people as possible.

Any money you donate for to this Crowdfunder will go towards:
