Individual Support

In 1986 the New Vic Theatre opened its doors as the first purpose built theatre-in-the-round in Europe. It was an astounding achievement following years of dedicated fundraising, only possible thanks to Victoria Theatre supporters and the local community. The New Vic Theatre still works to uphold its original commitment; to make excellent theatre-in-the-round and be a positive force for change in our region.  Sir Alan Ayckbourn said“The New Vic’s work with local people is inspiring and important.”

These are just some of our recent projects.

Our youngest audiences were introduced to the magic of theatre, over 850 under 5’s, their parents or carers attended ‘Tail Trail to A Christmas Carol’ over three weeks in December.

The AstraZeneca Science Teaching Trust sponsored the New Vic Education programme, ‘Dramatic Science’, provided professional development for 36 teachers to champion the use of creativity in teaching science at Key Stage 1 and 2, to improve education attainment.
Forced marriage protection orders were taken out for 14 girls and young women (the youngest being 8 years old), in response to our New Vic Borderlines ‘All Our Daughter’s’ programme. “It is without doubt an enormously worthwhileproject that I am sure will significantly contribute to saving lives.”Nazir Afzal OBE, Chief Crown Prosecutor for the North West.

Your support enables us to stay affordable, safeguard our valuable education and community work and continue being ambitious.
