Support for our work within rural communities is vital to ensure that isolated people of all ages have an opportunity to come together in a familiar, friendly environment. We want to ensure that future generations continue to have access to the arts and are not restricted to these opportunities because of their geographic location.

As a registered charity, NTC relies on financial help from friends, donors, trusts and foundations and other supporters to enable us to keep our productions affordable for smaller communities.

Did you know that a £1,000 donation is currently worth £1,250 to us with gift aid can be claimed?

Our Friends and Family scheme is a perfect way to support the work we do on an annual basis and be rewarded with benefits such as free tickets and chances to meet the team! If you are interested in supporting us through the Friends and Family Scheme you can find more details by clicking here and you can access the membership form here.

If you would like to make a one off donation or give a slightly larger sum, we are registered with The Big Give. It is very simple and secure to donate via their website. Please click here to be directed straight to the donation page.
