Support Us

SPID is a registered charity. All our youth shows and workshops are free to attend. Tickets for our professional shows are either free or deliberately low-priced, to encourage audiences who might otherwise not attend theatre. We rely on the support of arts funding bodies, local councils and organisations, and the generosity of individuals. We are a small and efficiently-run company with low overheads, and every penny we receive goes a long way.

If you would like to champion the arts as a means of building strong communities, push the boundaries of interactive theatre as an accessible and popular art form, regenerate neglected urban spaces, and enable a unique little company to prove that a successful youth theatre and flourishing professional company can run side by side as equals, then please consider supporting SPID.
