Align your business with ours and we can help you deliver your CSR objectives.

Responsible Business

Each year we provide opportunities for people of all ages to experience the magic of theatre, discover their own creativity and to develop skills.

The Pay It Forward Corporate Scheme is just one example of how current supporters have put something back into their local community.

Pay It Forward

The Northern Stage Pay It Forward scheme for businesses builds on the success of our Christmas Access Scheme.  Over the years, the schemes have enabled thousands of children to see our Christmas Show through the provision of free tickets and, with Pay It Forward, to provide free places on workshops or participation programmes throughout the year. 

For many of the children a visit to the Christmas show is the first time they have even been inside a theatre, and it is an experience that remains with them for years; as Lucy from Christ Church Primary School in North Shields so enthusiastically told their donor, in 2017: 

I am called Lucy and I am writing to you today to say thank you.  Thank you for being the best company in the world and taking me (kind of!) to see such an awesome show, in an incredible theatre, and sit next to my friends in brilliant seats.  The whole panto/musical was mint!

A donation of any size will make a difference, but as a guide, £300 will enable a school class or equivalent sized community group with supporting adults/carers to see Northern Stage's Christmas production.  If there is a school or community group you would like to receive the tickets, just let us know.  Otherwise we will arrange the match and make all the arrangements for the visit.

All our supporters will be credited in the Christmas production programme, on the Northern Stage website, on the screens in the foyer for the duration of the play and will receive a personal thank you from the group they have supported.
