Help OP to create, present and tour great theatre, subsidise tickets for everyone and give free tickets to those who can’t afford to pay, train theatre-makers for the future, and provide transformative opportunities for children and young people to develop skills, confidence and a love of the arts.

Oxford Playhouse is a charity, and makes a difference to the lives of nearly 200,000 people every year. The theatre needs to raise at least £250,000 each year, so share the love – come to see shows, spread the word and put your hand in your pocket to enable more people to love OP.

This year every £1.50 you give will be matched with another £1 from the Arts Council. A gift-aided donation of £25 is worth £47.92 to us and a gift-aided donation of £100 becomes £191.67.

Donations of any size are greatly appreciated and really make a difference.

Thank you to our current Corporate Partners who support us throughout the year.

Jane on the OPen road

Oxford Playhouse Administrator Jane Hornsby has raised more than £11,000 from her epic 1200 mile walk from Land's End to John O'Groats. Jane spent 60 gruelling days walking through all manner of terrain in all weather conditions, often not seeing another human for hours at a time to raise money for Oxford Playhouse's work with children and young people. You can still support Jane by making a donation. Every £1.50 you give is matched with a £1 by Arts Council England. So your £15 becomes £25.
