We need your support. 



The Yard needs your help to keep nurturing artists and our local community, especially young people aged 4-19, during lockdown.

The Yard raises funds for its theatre, music and participatory programmes through our box office and bar. This vital work reaches tens of thousands of visitors and local residents each year. 


But with our spaces closed, our programmes and our future are at risk.


Yard Online is a ‘Donate What You Can’ festival, because we want it to be free for those who need it most. But if you can afford it, please help us to continue our mission by making a donation.

By making a donation for Yard Online at our JustGiving page, you’ll be helping us to deliver:

  • Free creative programmes for over 100 local children and young people including weekly online workshops while our spaces are closed

  • Commissions for new digital performances, and creative development opportunities to develop artists’ careers during lockdown

How much should you donate?

Any amount is appreciated. It could be the amount you would have spent on getting here; it could be the price of an average ticket (£15) for every online event you attend today, or it could be more.


If you can’t donate, please don’t worry. Spending your time helps us deliver on our mission too.


Here are some suggested donations and things you can enjoy in our physical spaces. 


We would like to thank all of our Friends, Guardians and funders for providing essential support, helping us to keep serving our community during this difficult time.
