Play your part in
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.

Just £30 could help us do any one of the following:

  • Enable a local young person to take part in our year round Uncover programme
  • Provide the necessary support for a community group to put on their own event
  • Provide an hours mentoring for an artist at the start of their career
  • Pay for four local children to be introduced to the theatre for the first time
