The Old Rep Theatre is part of a national initiative launched by Theatres Trust to help us raise funds via a virtual bucket shake this festive season.
We need your help more than ever in order to maintain this historic and beloved Theatre. With your help and Crowdfunder we are convinced that #VirtualBucketShake will enable us to raise the money necessary to continue a programme for much needed improvements of this historic venue, such as our stage lighting which is over eighty years old, sound desk upgrades and on-going auditorium repairs.
Our Virtual Bucket Shake
This year due to the global pandemic, we are unable to open our doors. We are facing a loss of income from ticket sales, merchandise and bars, as well as missing out on the opportunity for a traditional bucket collection. This is why we’d like to invite you to take part in a Virtual Bucket Collection this festive season.
Your donations will be used for the upkeep and restoration of our stage, lighting, sound equipment and auditorium.
About The Old Rep Theatre
The Old Rep Theatre situated in the City Centre of Birmingham is nestled in the heart of the community. It is a place to come together, to be inspired and be entertained. The Old Rep Theatre is where our best-loved actors, past and present learn their craft and thousands of others learn valuable skills, through education, teaching and workshops.
About Save Our Theatres
In villages, towns and cities across the country, theatres are at the heart of their community. Places to come together, to be inspired and be entertained. Theatres are where our best-loved actors learn their craft and thousands of others learn valuable skills.
Theatres saw their main source of income disappear in an instant when they closed in March in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
We still don’t know when they will be able to reopen fully. This ongoing uncertainty puts theatres in a difficult situation.
We know that this year has been hard on all our Theatre followers, but anything you donate will go towards ensuring The Old Rep Theatre’s growing list of repairs are upgraded and enhanced for generations to come.
