Playhouse 50:50 Appeal


We created the 50:50 scheme to donate tickets to charities and community groups – meaning that people who otherwise would not have the means to come to the theatre are able to. Since starting this campaign in 2013, over 7500 people have experienced live theatre thanks to your generosity.
You can help by donating just £10 to fund one ticket.

You can donate:

  • By calling the Box Office on 0115 941 9419 and asking to support the 50:50 appeal
  • By making a regular donation by Direct Debit
  • By cheque made payable to Nottingham Playhouse Trust Limited and sent to Playhouse 50:50, Nottingham Playhouse, Wellington Circus, Nottingham, NG1 5AL

Please note, we are currently unable to accept donations online whilst our systems are being upgraded.

With your support, we can ensure that the work of Nottingham Playhouse can be seen by everyone, including those most in need.

“_From the moment you enter the theatre to the conversations it brings after the show, it has such a huge emotional effect. It’s a joyous feeling. However, not everyone is able to relish this experience like we are. Many people in our own community who face significant struggles will never have the chance to experience this joyful atmosphere. Nottingham Playhouse are working hard to change this through their important 50:50 appeal. Through 50:50, Nottingham Playhouse donates tickets to local charities, community groups, and schools to ensure that our theatre is truly for everyone_.”

Thank you.
