Connecting Worlds is the guiding vision of Tara Theatre 

The Theatre is run by Tara Arts, a registered arts charity (no: 295547). Each year, we have to raise £150,000 in addition to our Box Office income and Arts Council England subsidy. We actively seek to attract support from a variety of Trusts and Foundations and Wandsworth Council each year towards meeting this target.  

And, especially, we rely on our Individual Supporters. Every individual donation we receive - large or small - is vital to achieving our annual target for ensuring the Theatre's civic responsibility to connect worlds.

Every donation plays a concrete part in supporting the work you see in Tara Theatre - from props, sets and costumes to lighting and sound designers and the welcoming Front-of-House staff. 

Donations also support the development work that goes into creating a new play, hosting visiting productions and providing opportunities for emerging writers, directors, performers & administrative and backstage staff; as well as helping us share our work with larger global audiences through touring, live-streams and webcasts.  

The options below provide ways in which you can support Tara Theatre.

Making the most of your donation with Gift Aid

When you Gift Aid your donation, Tara Arts receives an extra 25p for every £1 you give, making your donation even more beneficial. If you are a UK taxpayer, please tick the Gift Aid box when donating online.
