The Swallow Theatre is Scotland’s smallest professional theatre.
Located in rural Dumfries & Galloway this unique and intimate venue is looking forward to reopening and is planning for the long-term future.
As part of that future plan we need to replace the theatre roof. The estimated cost is just over £20,000 and we have already raised £13,730 via our supporters and a Crowdfunder Appeal which has now ended. We do still need help to raise the remaining £6,270 to replace the theatre roof.
We’d love to be able to get the work on the roof completed before we reopen.
Can you help us to raise £20,000 to replace the roof?
For donations of £25 or more you can have a tile on our commemorative roof appeal mural Find out more.
If you would like to donate a greater amount than the options offer here please contact us for details.
Below are some videos created for the Crowdfunder Appeal by performers who love this place.
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. However, if you have donated specifically to The Swallow Theatre Roof Appeal, and should the roof repair not commence, donors will have their money refunded. No refund of your donation to The Swallow Theatre Roof Appeal will be available once the roof work has commenced
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.
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 of the Roof Appeal, including ownership, control or intellectual property rights.
