From our inception fifteen years ago we have mounted an annual, two-play Spring season of Shakespeare at our home in Bristol's most exciting studio theatre, Tobacco Factory Theatres. Despite what is now an international reputation we receive no core funding from any public body and therefore rely on a loyal and growing base of Friends and Patrons to add that life-saving extra element to our Box Office, Grant and Trust and Corporate Sponsorship incomes.
Please support the Arts in Bristol by joining us as a Friend and encouraging your friends to become our Friends. As a registered charity Government Gift Aid adds a further 25% to all Friends’ subscriptions from U.K. taxpayers.

It is totally secure and you will also be given the option of 'GiftAiding' your donation.
Make sure you DO NOT tick the 'give anonymously' box or we shall be unable to give you any of the benefits of your chosen scheme! CAF will guide you quickly and easily through payment and the Gift Aid Tax Declaration. This is a time-saving way for us to collect money - the Gift Aid comes directly to us with your donation, rather than us having to claim it from the Inland Revenue at a later date.
