the future of the Albany
The Albany has been developing talent and inspiring its local community for over 30 years. We believe everyone should be able to experience the very best in theatre, music, spoken word and the arts. As a registered charity, every penny the Albany receives makes a difference, helping us to bring the best live performances to our audiences, develop our participation projects with our local community, and keep our building open and accessible for all. Collaboration is key to our model and we want to create exciting work with our Associate Artists and resident companies for many years to come.
Every £1 donated makes a difference.

- Enable a local young person to take part in our year round Uncover programme
