Why support the Lichfield Garrick?
Thanks to you, we are able to provide top quality shows and events for the people of Lichfield and the surrounding areas.
You may not realise that the Lichfield Garrick is a registered charity, but our Box Office and Green Room revenue isn't nearly enough of what we need to raise each year.
Great art can change lives and we strive to deliver top quality performances and events, as well as running specialist programs for visitors young and old.
Without your support, we would not be able to continue providing the wide range of musical theatre, drama, comedy, music and family entertainment for our audiences. Any gift, large or small, is hugely appreciated.
Ways you can support us
Contribute as an individual by making a one off or regular donation or remembering us in your will. You can even contribute when shopping online.
With memberships starting from as little as £15, our Friends scheme gives you exclusive offers and benefits not available to the public, as well as providing us with valuable support.
We also enjoy partnerships with many local businesses through bespoke sponsorships.
How we will use your contribution
There are many ways that your contribution can support our work, for example:
Your donation will go towards the many Community outreach and Education projects we run throughout the year, such as:
- The use of our Community Stage for a local group.
- Our constant work and review to ensure we are a fully accessible building, and ambitions to offer BSL, Captioned, Relaxed, Dementia Friendly and Audio Described performances.
- The running of our Community Choirs, which can be joined by people of all backgrounds and abilities.
- The production of home-grown theatre, made by and for the people of Lichfield and the surrounding area.
- The up keep and maintenance of our building to ensure you have the best possible all-round experience.
There are many more ways your support can be used in addition to the examples above. When we ask for donations, we ask for these in way that they can be unrestricted and used on the most important needs of the Theatre at that time. If you wish to donate to a specific project, or have any other questions about our fundraising, then please do get in touch.
For more information on how to support us, please contact Matt Clay, Sales & Development Manager - firstname.lastname@example.org or 01543 412123.
We are currently without a Defibrillator in our building and need to have one in place in time for our busy Christmas season. This life-saving piece of equipment is costly, and we are running bucket collections after performances of The Case Of The Frightened Lady to contribute to this. All the money collected will go towards the purchase and maintenance of a defibrillator at Lichfield Garrick.
You can also visit box office or call 01543 412121 to donate. Individual named donations of £50 or more will be recognised for 12 months on our website and a front of house display.
YOUR SUPPORT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Anyone of any age can suffer cardiac arrest - a person's chance of survival falls by about 10% for each minute that passes without defibrillation. The risk of death can be reduced if there is easy access to a defibrillator.
Without your support, we would not be able to provide this essential piece of equipment to our audiences and the wider community. We very much hope that it does not need to be used, but the peace of mind this will provide our staff and customers is invaluable - thank you!
As always, we value your continued support and we look forward to seeing you at the Lichfield Garrick very soon.
