The BSC is a non-for-profit organization and as we receive no regular funding we rely on contributions from companies and individuals, like yourself to continue our work.

We are dedicated to producing The Bard’s works to the very highest standard as maintained by our past productions which have been enjoyed by audiences all over the UK and overseas and acclaimed by the press, the industry and most importantly – you!

However, maintaining the standard that we have set is costly. While we have had to make sensible financial decisions like most other companies during these difficult times, we don’t want to compromise the quality of our shows.

How you can help

By making a donation to the company you are helping to mount the show, pay the staff and actors and ensure that the tradition of outdoor Shakespeare at its highest level as performed by the BSC continues.


Whilst we have a specific target that we must achieve, any amount helps. Put it this way: £30 will hire the rehearsal space for one hour, £350 will pay the cost of producing a period doublet and £1800 is the average cost of one week’s accommodation for the company.


We need to raise £100,000 over the next 12 months to cover expenses for the coming productions and see us through to 2010. It sounds like a lot but with your help and a great season ahead - we will get there!

Thank you for choosing to support the future work of the British Shakespeare Company.
