New Theatre Royal Portsmouth has successfully raised over £15,000 in emergency funds through a Crowdfunding campaign organised by the Theatres Trust to #SaveOurTheatres.

We would like to thank everyone who donated to our Crowdfunder to help #SaveNTR. Your support means so much to us in what has been an incredibly difficult year for our industry.

We are the culture champion of the UK’s only island city. We encourage creativity and curiosity and play a vital role in our community. Closing our doors in March has had a devastating impact and our future is under threat.

The donations made through our Crowdfunder will help to:

  • Secure the existence of New Theatre Royal and the delivery of uplifting and joyous live performances for everyone
  • Retain as many of our experiences and passionate staff members as possible
  • Maintain our stunning historic building which stands in the heart of the city
  • Create and progress a thriving future for New Theatre Royal

We believe that we are going to need theatres more than ever to bring us back together as we recover from Covid-19. We are passionate about our community and inspiring people through live performance and participation.

Thanks to the generosity of our audiences, local community and businesses who have supported us, we can come back stronger and remain in the heart of Portsmouth for many more years to come.

The Crowdfunder has now closed but we are still grateful for donations to help keep us going. Donate now.
