Support Us

New Diorama does things differently, but we can’t do them alone.

We're the UK's only venue dedicated to independent theatre companies and bold creative collaborations. We support artists to make daring new work, unafraid to depart from the crowd.

Collaboration, shared ownership and creative ambition are at the heart of our approach. Whether it’s co-creating projects with young people and elderly groups, commissioning internationally-celebrated and award-winning new shows, or supporting the next generation of inspiring theatre-makers.

If you believe, like us, that small theatres and brave artists can change the world, then we need your help.

Now more than ever, individual support is what unlocks our ambition, and our donors are the real superstars of the NDT team. We don’t get any regular public funding, and we’re run with a small core staff – so every penny that’s donated goes straight to our artistic mission.

Whatever you can afford, join our Supporters Scheme or Donate Now to come along for the ride.
