Belvoir gratefully acknowledges the visionary people who share our ambition and support our work – thank you for your faith in us, and your commitment to the artists, technicians and audience members who bring our space to life.

Belvoir is more than a theatre, it’s a place that reveals itself to me again and again and again. The stories that play out on that corner stage have the power to shift things.

That is why I donate.

Support Education

At Belvoir we believe that all young people should have access to theatre regardless of where they live or their socio-economic background. We believe in the transformative power of theatre and the importance of creativity as an essential skill for the future.

As our No Barriers Education Program does not receive government funding, we are only able to offer free and heavily subsidised performances, school visits and workshops because of the generosity of people like you.

Help us break down barriers, build confidence and unleash creativity – make your donation today. Find out more about the power of theatre to develop young people’s hearts and minds.

Belvoir has provided experiences that my students learn so much from and will hold for the rest of their lives.

I’ve never seen a play before this. I’ve heard of the experience but never seen one, so having this as my first play is one I’ll remember.
