Act 2 Appeal


After an extended and unprecedented interval, we are delighted to be lighting up The Watermill stage once again, ready to welcome you back with brilliant live theatre in our beautiful gardens.  

The past year has undoubtedly been a challenging time for us, but the generosity of our community has truly blown us away. Without you, the theatre would have struggled to stay afloat, and things would look very different today.

Buoyed by your encouragement, we hope that you feel able to continue to support our mission to uplift and inspire people through great theatre.

We are excited to celebrate your return, and with our artistic ambition ever-present we have launched a new fundraising campaign, ACT 2, to help rebuild our artistic programme and keep our productions centre stage.

Donations received will support the creation of future productions at the theatre and will enable us to resume our important outreach and education activities on-site, helping us to make and strengthen connections with our community.

Please support our work by making a donation to ACT 2 today.

Something went wrong trying to process your donation, please contact the box office.

Thank you to everyone who has donated to our ACT 2 appeal during Funding Fortnight. We are delighted to announce that you have helped us to raise an incredible £31,558 towards our new ACT 2 appeal!

We will of course keep on fundraising and hope that you will continue to follow our campaign journey, as we have big plans to uplift and inspire you through great theatre, both on and off our stage. Although donations made now will not be match funded, your support will continue to make a huge difference to the theatre’s future, and we would still love to receive a donation from you.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity in supporting The Watermill Theatre, our staff, many freelancers and our future. We are extremely grateful.
