The Crescent Theatre is a not for profit charity and receives no funding, therefore, we must raise any money we need for the upkeep of the building ourselves. As a local community theatre we have become an important part of the local arts scene not only to present our own productions but also to offer our facilities to a host of local groups to stage their productions. Keeping the Crescent alive is vital and we have established close links with various organisations to ensure that they have an affordable venue to perform in.
Coronavirus – Donate in support of the Crescent
In keeping with the government guidelines and supporting the national effort to control the COVID-19 pandemic we are currently closed. As a non-funded charity we rely largely on the income of our ticket sales and donations from our audiences to help us remain an independent community theatre producing high quality entertainment with access for all. We do not receive any government subsidy or regular local authority financial assistance. This mean that the current pandemic could be financially devastating for us with no income and, of course, we must still maintain the building. We have taken steps to reduce our overheads, which include furloughing most of our staff, but we still need the help of our supporters at this crucial time.
If you would like to make a donation to support the survival of your local theatre in these challenging times and sustain the Crescent as an important venue in the West Midlands arts scene, then we would be forever grateful.
