Like many in the creative industries, Omnibus Theatre has been badly affected by Covid-19. On 16th March 2020 we shut our doors and since then our small team has working tirelessly to secure the funds needed to ensure our survival.
In these very challenging and uncertain times memberships and donations are vital. It is with the generous support of our members, community, audiences and local organisations we have been able to continue our artistic work and run participatory projects like Routes, Lunchbox, 575 Stories, Story Circle and more.
Whilst you may know that Omnibus is one of London’s newest and most exciting theatres, you might not be aware that we are a registered charity.
We believe that this building should be kept open for the benefit of the public and to deliver our mission of bringing excellent art and creative learning to people from all walks of life, we need your help.
We receive absolutely no guaranteed funding or statutory support, and box office proceeds only cover 1/3 of our annual income. In order to keep our ticket prices low, support emerging talent and provide education for young and disadvantaged people, we rely on the generosity of individuals, trusts and foundations and corporate partners.
Without your support, this would quite simply be impossible.
