Why support the Lichfield Garrick?
Thanks to you, the people of Lichfield and the surrounding areas are able to enjoy top quality shows and events.
Lichfield Garrick has charitable status, which means any surplus funds we make after covering our costs is reinvested back into our work. Your donations go towards work which can't be covered by revenue from ticket and bar sales. This includes delivering top quality performances and events, as well as running specialist community programs for participants young and old.
In 2018, we raised £22,713.48 thanks to our generous customers, towards our charitable activities and keeping us sustainable.
With your support, the wide range of theatre, comedy, music and family entertainment can be provided for our audiences. Any gift, large or small, is hugely appreciated.
Ways you can make a difference
There are many ways you can contribute as an individual, from making a small donation with your ticket booking, to giving a larger or more regular gift. You can even contribute when shopping online, using Give As You Live or Amazon Smile.
With memberships starting from as little as £15, our Friends scheme gives you exclusive offers and benefits not available to the public, as well as providing us with valuable support.
Local businesses can enjoy a variety of benefits through bespoke sponsorships.
