Our Supporters

As a registered charity and not-for-profit company, the Royal Court relies on its supporters every year in addition to our core grant from Arts Council England and our ticket sales. 2020 was an unusual year in so many ways and we are particularly grateful to the individuals, trusts and companies who stood by us and continued to support our work during these difficult times. It is with this vital support that the Royal Court remains the writers’ theatre and that we can continue to seek out, develop and nurture new voices, both on and off our stages.

Thank you to all who support the Royal Court in this way. We really can’t do it without you.
