December has begun and at Stratford East that means one thing – panto is returning!

Though the stage is set and the cast is ready to welcome audiences to the world of Red Riding Hood, we’re not out of the woods yet…

The COVID-19 pandemic is having a devastating impact on the theatre industry and Stratford East is no different. Though we’re hugely grateful for the support we’ve received through government and other emergency funds, we still have a long way to go to get back to our pre-pandemic selves and beyond.

We are asking for your support to help us get out of the woods and thrive in 2022.

There are four ways you can help:  

1. Text TRSE plus the amount you want to donate to 70085 (e.g. TRSE 10 to donate £10). Texts cost your donation amount plus one standard rate message  

2. Donate online via our website here - we are always grateful for our passionate, loyal and supportive audiences. A donation of any size will go a huge way. 

3. Sign up as a Member - although our membership scheme is paused, we will be welcoming our members back to the theatre as soon as possible for exclusive events, Q&As with cast and creatives and opportunities to get closer to our work

4. Simply spread the word. If you can’t do any of the above, please share this as widely as possible. Your theatre needs you.
