We are a charity that needs your help to make a big impact
Your support will help:
Create extraordinary experiences
We want to make and share unforgettable moments; ones where you’re sitting on the edge of your seat; where you’re moved to tears; where you’re laughing out loud; or you’re hit by a new idea. Moments that you’ll talk about with family and friends for years to come.
Each time we bring an award-winning show to Devon or make our own right here in Exeter, we aim to create experiences you’ll never forget.
Change the lives of young people
We know how creativity can transform lives. Working with more than 1,600 young people each year, we help them explore issues and ideas that matter to them. With a strong focus on mental health and wellbeing, we design bespoke projects and platforms that offer creative support to schools, youth groups and young individuals who need it most.
Bring together communities
Now more than ever we need stories to help us understand and shape our world. We’re developing a number of projects designed to give a voice to community groups so that they can tell their stories and effect real change.
Give essential support to theatre makers
The pandemic has hit the cultural sector hard and the theatre-makers of tomorrow are in urgent need of solid and sustained support. Through our artist development programme, Northcott Futures, and through job opportunities, commissions and projects, we will offer bespoke packages of training and professional development.Northcott Stories
HELP US GIFT A CHRISTMAS CAROL TO CHILDREN AND FAMILIES
A trip to the Northcott as Christmas has become a tradition for Devon families. But for some, it’s a treat they can’t afford. We work with local charities and community organisations to gift free tickets to young people and families who wouldn’t otherwise be able to go.
“This has made my Christmas. I have never experienced anything like this in my life.”
– Pay It Forward recipient, Beauty and the Beast 2019
Please consider donating towards the cost of an additional ticket* and together, we can share the magic of theatre this Christmas.
*Tickets are from £14 for children under 16
