National Theatre Future Project

“I’ll never forget how exciting the National Theatre felt when I first walked into it; and NT Future is all about opening it up – both metaphorically and physically – to more people.”

Nicholas Hytner, Director of the National Theatre 2003-2015

Your new, transformed National Theatre is almost ready.

By the time NT Future is complete, the NT will be a place where people can explore and make theatre as well as watch it, and an organisation committed to sharing its skills and expertise beyond the profession – a place that is open to everyone.

We are so close to achieving our £80 million fundraising target and completing NT Future. Thank you to the more than 140,000 donors who have supported the project so far.

With under £1 million left to raise, it’s not too late to make a difference. You can still name a seat in the Dorfman Theatre or a paving stone on our outdoor Weston Terrace and help us cross the finish line. Donations of all sizes are welcome and will be matched pound for pound by a challenge grant in this final crucial stage of NT Future. For example, a gift of £100, which is eligible for Gift Aid at £25, becomes a contribution of £250 to the NT.

Please give today and create a theatre for tomorrow.

For enquiries about the NT Future Supporters Mural, please contact the Development Department on 0207 452 3916.*


*Please note, the deadline for inclusion on the Supporters Mural has now passed and so we will no longer be able to include your acknowledgement on the mural in addition to seat and stone donations.
