We are passionate about what we do. But we need your help.
There are many ways that you can support The Edge and everything that we do here.
…alongside the excellent work on stage, there’s good stuff happening throughout the organisation, with a participation programme as inclusive as it is ambitiousRob Martin, Time Out
Because we are a charity, every time you buy a ticket, sign up to a course or buy a coffee in our café, you are supporting our work with vulnerable adults and young people.
By making a regular monthly gift through Edge Mates, your support will enable us to make more stories with more people. It means that we can continue to offer a diverse, world class theatre programme while keeping ticket costs down and being as accessible as possible.
You can choose the amount you give us but below is an idea of how what your money can help us. Don’t forget that if you are a UK tax payer any donation you make can be increased by 25% at no cost to yourself by providing us with consent to claim Gift Aid.
