Support the theatre

We try to keep ticket prices as low as possible.

We are very grateful to performers being understanding and flexible with fees, but with physical distancing requirements and capacity constraints, ticket income will still only just cover the cost of the performance, with very little being left for theatre running costs.

We are a private enterprise and we have to cover all our costs from ticket sales and donations.

We understand that these are difficult times, with many worthwhile projects asking for help. If you can spare any amount to help the theatre, it will be greatly appreciated.

• If you donate any part of a ticket refund you are entitled to, then your money will be used to help us meet the performer’s minimum fee, and once this is met, will be split between the performer and the venue.

• If you donate to our Roof Appeal, your money will be used on projects to maintain and improve the theatre buildings and audience experience – read more about the Roof Appeal and our Buy a Tile scheme.

• All other donations will be used for any theatre purpose.

Donations Terms and Conditions

Donations are made to The Swallow Theatre, a private partnership which maintains and operates The Swallow Theatre, which is a private building owned by the partners of The Swallow Theatre partnership. Donations are not eligible for Gift Aid and should not be entered on your tax return (if applicable).

The partners currently take no income from the partnership – rather they currently subsidize the running and upgrade costs of the venue from their personal money. The long-term plan is to make the venue self-sustaining by generating sufficient income for it to cover its costs.The owners have no plans to sell the venue or to cease trading for the foreseeable future. However, should a family urgency, major sickness or death occur which means they are no longer able to operate the theatre, or if for any other reason the theatre had to cease operating, no refund of your donation will be made. 

The Swallow Theatre reserves the right to refuse any donation and to approve all wording of tiles to be included in the fundraiser mural. Donations do not entitle you to any rights in The Swallow Theatre or the Roof Appeal, including ownership, control or intellectual property rights.

If funds raised for The Swallow Theatre Roof Appeal are in excess of the final amount required to repair the roof, the donations will be used for similar maintenance and upgrade projects to the theatre and foyer.
