#SaveTheLondonArts

This year we are running #SaveTheLondonArts, raising money for two youth theatre groups that are based in London and providing them with much-needed support. COVID-19 and social distancing almost decimated the arts industry, with a number of smaller companies unable to continue and being forced to shut down entirely due to a lack of funds.

The money raised by this fundraiser will support the two companies' future performances, go towards equipment, sets and costumes and support London's future artists, a number of whom come from disadvantaged backgrounds. 

For anyone that posted across social media at the show using our hashtag #LondonBuild, we will make a donation to Save the London Arts and you'll be entered into the draw to WIN one of the amazing prizes listed below!

They support community cohesion by bringing together young people and families of diverse backgrounds, particularly engaging young people considered ‘hard-to-reach’ and ‘under-privileged’ to develop their performative, creative and life skills.
