Making Memories: Help us share the magic of Sleeping Beauty

Posted on 6 November 2018

It’s that time of year again! Oh yes it is!

With just a couple of weeks to go until our Sleeping Beauty pantomime opens, Making Memories is hoping to build on the tremendous success of last year’s Christmas fundraising campaign.

Set up to help enable families facing difficult circumstances access theatre, Making Memories has snowballed in success over the last six years, raising a staggering £33,063. This has supported 2,228 families across Coventry and Warwickshire to experience the transformative power of theatre, by attending shows at the Belgrade throughout the year.

As any regular visitor to the Belgrade will know, a trip to the theatre can be a powerful experience, bringing people together and cultivating treasured memories that can last a lifetime. Unfortunately, due to a wide range of circumstances beyond their control, including financial hardship or illness, many families across Coventry and Warwickshire don’t get the chance to create these memories, with tickets to the theatre a luxury they simply can’t afford.

That’s where Making Memories comes in. This year, we’re aiming to raise enough money to allow around 140 families (or 700 people) the chance to enjoy an unforgettable visit to the Belgrade.

  • A donation of just £15 will enable one child to see Sleeping Beauty.
  • £36 will enable one child and one adult to enjoy the show.
  • £60 will enable a whole family of four to watch the show.

If you’d like to support the campaign, you can donate online via our Local Giving page, or call the box office on 024 7655 3055. If you’re eligible, don’t forget to Gift Aid your donation to ensure that it goes even further.

The Belgrade Theatre Trust is a registered charity (number 219163). This means that all the money given, raised or earned is not distributed as profit but kept and reinvested in the work that we do.

We rely on the continued support of our audiences, funders, corporate partners, Members and donors to ensure that we can continue to develop our artistic and educational work and remain central to the communities that we serve.
