Charitable Trusts and Foundations, Corporate Foundations and Livery Companies play a crucial role in the life of Soho Theatre, supporting quality new, emerging work from established and upcoming artists.

Grants support our artistic mission and delivery of vision. As well as our creative programme, we:
• Inspire children and young people to develop their skills and talents through Soho Young Company and Soho Young Playwrights
• Support emerging writers to find their voice and create new work for our stages through Soho Six, Writers Lab and the Verity Bargate Award
• Reach new audiences through touring our work across the UK and internationally as well as creating digital content for television and online viewing

To find out more about our work or our future plans please contact Development Director Bhavita Bhatt or call 020 7478 0107.

 

“People can get into a bit of a habit of what young writers are supposed to do. Soho Theatre are encouraging me to think bigger and think beyond that”
