Trusts and Foundations


The Royal Court Theatre is a leading force in world theatre, dedicated to new work by innovative writers. We pride ourselves on artistic excellence, but the plays we produce are just the tip of the iceberg.  

Behind the scenes, we strive to discover new talent, amplify unheard voices and develop new audiences from diverse communities.  To fund this work, we rely on support from charitable bodies whose vital contributions help us produce high-quality theatre, develop emerging talent and ensure we are a theatre for everyone, regardless of background or circumstance. 


The Royal Court is a charity and a company limited by guarantee. Less than half of our annual income comes from Arts Council England. To sustain our work and continue developing new writers, we need to secure £1.5 million from the private sector each year. Charitable trusts and foundations make a vital contribution to this target.
