16 March 2020 – 31 January 2021

Ensure the Orange Tree’s future

Following advice from the Government the Orange Tree closed the theatre on 16 March 2020.

As an independent theatre and registered charity that relies on ticket income, the implications of this are serious for the OT and we are therefore appealing for your help to ensure the Orange Tree’s future.

As a grateful recipient of a Culture Recovery Fund grant from the Government, the Orange Tree Theatre is secure until the spring of 2021. In order to ensure our survival as restrictions continue, and to deliver projects such as live streamed events or our extensive Education & Participation Programme, we still need to raise additional funds. That's why the support of our audiences, Members, Patrons and funders is more vital than ever.

Support today, and keep outstanding, award-winning theatre alive.
