Why Your Support Matters

We’re driven by a passion for brave and brilliant theatre, a love of our city and a belief that theatre at its best can transform lives.

With the creation of the new Everyman, five-star productions on our stages and an impactful youth and community programme, there has never been a more important time, or greater opportunity, to achieve this vision. 

To do this we must raise at least £500,000 every year, in addition to income from ticket sales and investment from public funding. If you would like to help then please follow the links here or get in touch via or 0151 706 9124.

“The Everyman provided me and many others with the courage to follow our dreams and pursue a career in the theatre. Now it can do the same for a whole new generation and act as a creative heart in the city.”  David Morrissey
