Support Spontaneous Productions

We had a great start to this year's programme with a packed out scratch night in February and one of our best received family shows - Hansel & Gretel - but unfortunately failed to secure our Arts Council grant, and so we are looking to other funders and sponsors to help us keep going, during these challenging times.

 

To help us launch our planned programme of outdoor theatre and exciting new project we are once again asking for donations through Gofundme. Please help if you are able to. Every £ you contribute will go towards our productions in the park and at Sydenham Centre, and enable us to buy new radio mics to improve the sound quality at all our shows.

Your donations will enable us to go ahead with ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS (25 May-2 June), HOME FROM HOME (for refugee week 15-22 June) and THE TOWN MOUSE AND THE COUNTRY MOUSE (20-28 July).
