Whatever you love the most about coming to the Royal Exchange Theatre you can pass it on with a gift in your will.

What could a gift in your Will do?  

This is your chance to share how live theatre makes you feel – the way it can change how you think, see into other lives, and open up the world.

Let someone see live theatre for the first time. 

You can give the experience of live theatre to people who might never otherwise have the chance to see it, because of cost or feeling it’s only for others. You can make eyes widen, hearts thump and new worlds open up.  

A gift of any size can make a difference

£1,000 in your Will could enable us to invite 10  community groups  here for free, to see live theatre for the first time. 

Support the creation of new stories and voices 

Your gift could help commission new work that draws in new audiences. It could train new directors from different backgrounds so that we always have a rich mix of interesting viewpoints. 

£500 could support a place in our  Young Company, to bring more local young people into theatre as a potential career. 

£5,000 in your Will could give a promising new theatre-maker the support they need for 12 months to develop an idea. 

£10,000 could commission a writer to create a new play or adaptation. 

Make your mark on our stage 

Your gift could be used to create a jaw-dropping experience on stage. 

£2,000 in your Will could pay for some scene-stealing costumes. 

£5,000 could help build a surprising set that gets everyone talking. 

£200,000 could put your name on a full-scale production on our main stage. 

We’d like to show our appreciation  

If you decide this is for you, we do hope you’ll let us know. We would love to say thank you in person (if you’d like that). We can also discuss how you might like your love for the Theatre to be marked when we eventually receive your gift… a  plaque; your name in a programme; a credit in a production / a bursary; or perhaps free tickets for family and friends – whoever you’d like to come and raise a glass while they share in something that matters to you. We’re always open to ideas.
