‘Every Child’ enables businesses and individuals to give a local child the chance to experience the magic of theatre. The campaign centres on the belief that every child should have the opportunity to benefit from early access to the arts, which contributes significantly to childhood development.

Just £10 provides a free visit to the theatre for a child from your community.

In its first year, the scheme funded free tickets for over half of all Lewisham primary schools or 2,300 primary school children to come and see shows at the Albany. We raised funds for additional 1,200 children to come to shows in the next few months – taking our year1 total to £35k!

Young audiences described the shows they saw and their trip to the theatre as ‘brilliant’, ‘amazing’, ‘great’, ‘wonderful’ and ‘better than the chocolate pancakes I had for breakfast!’

Adding your support could see us reach every child in Lewisham, every year!

Our Patrons

The campaign is supported by our brilliant patrons – Noma Dumezweni and Jude Law.

As a Lewisham resident I am delighted to support this vital initiative, investing not only in the future of young people, but the future of the arts. These youngsters are the leaders, audiences and artists of tomorrow. I know the power of theatre and to pass that power on to the people who matter the most is a thrilling opportunity
Noma Dumezweni: Patron, Lewisham resident and award-winning actress.
I am delighted to support this terrific initiative which has the potential to positively impact the lives of young children in Lewisham. It is crucial for the future of our communities that we find creative ways to nurture and support the next generation. Theatre has the power to inspire children and we must encourage them to follow their dreams, no matter how big.

1 ticket costs £10.

We believe Every Child should be able to access the arts in their local area.

Donate a ticket for a child, a class or even a year group from your community to come to the theatre.
