Do something extraordinary

There really is no better time to get involved

Donor support allows New Perspectives' artistic, rural and talent development programmes to thrive. As a registered charity, our work is only possible because of donors like you. Support from individuals, trusts and foundations, public and private company support helps to continue the development of our work and ensures the future vitality of  New Perspectives' rural theatre and training opportunities for emerging artists. One of the ways you can help us to engage with communities who otherwise might miss out on live cultural events and support the next generation of theatre makers regionwide is by joining our family of supporters and see Your Name in Lights

And remember: as a UK taxpayer, if you Gift Aid your donation this will add a further 25p per £1, which means that by working together we can make an even greater impact.



Play your part in a new creative project to spark imaginations

We are currently fundraising for our next project - Shhh...akespeare! - a clever new retelling of Macbeth with 3 actors using only cards - each featuring a single word - in this fun and accessible 30 minute performance to be toured into disadvantaged Nottinghamshire primary and secondary schools, accompanied by an interactive workshop.

How will we raise the funds?

We are appealing to specific trusts and foundations and public support to raise funds to pilot Shhh...akespeare!  as this project is in addition and adds value to support already received from Arts Council England. For further details please visit our Big Give page.

Why support our project?

Opportunities for children to enjoy drama are rapidly dwindling from the primary curriculum, and as a result many young pupils have never experienced live drama, or had a chance to explore this artistic medium. In Nottinghamshire in particular, government statistics indicate that primary school pupils fall below the national average for achieving level 4b or above in reading tests and level 4 or above in writing assessments. The first step to achieving higher attainment for these pupils is to foster an interest in literature and spark their interest. With pupils set to study a lot more Shakespeare during their secondary curriculum, we want to find a fun and accessible way to engage children earlier on, through drama.

For donations £30 and over, we will put your name in lights on our website!





New Perspectives is an East Midlands based national touring theatre company, with a specialty in creating dynamic performances for rural audiences. We make ambitious and original theatre, focusing on new writing, adaptations and revivals, which we present in community settings and venues nationally and internationally. We provide career defining training and mentoring opportunities for emerging regional talent and manage the rural touring scheme Northants Touring Arts . 

One of the many things we do is to turn village halls into professional theatre spaces.

Whether you’re a theatre lover, rural champion, or believe in widespread access to the arts then please help us make our work. Like every actor on stage, or each word on the page, every donor plays a vital role, your support can make a real difference... Find out more
