Regular giving deserves applause

The Watermill Theatre is one of the country’s leading regional theatres and under the direction of Hedda Beeby, its productions continue to wow audiences at home and on tour. With nearly 69,000 people seeing a Watermill show last year we are proud to be able to keep up our tradition of producing award-winning shows.

As a registered charity, The Watermill Theatre aims to break even each financial year. Approximately 85% of our revenue income is generated by our own activities – box office sales, restaurant sales, sponsorship, donations and merchandise. The remaining 15% is received from the Arts Council of England SE and West Berkshire Council and investments.

Fundraising remains a priority for us every year. Without ongoing support from our donors we would not be able to fully deliver our artistic programme and we would struggle to survive. Your support is crucial to the theatre now and in the future.

As an added incentive for you to give, we are delighted to announce that for every new or increased donation you make, The Arts Council will match fund your donation. For example, a £30 single donation will be worth nearly £50 to the theatre, at no extra cost to you. There’s no catch, just added benefit to The Watermill Theatre.
