We’ve been totally overwhelmed with the support we have had from artists, audiences and participants in and around Swindon over the past year – the Shoebox Theatre wouldn’t exist without you!


Now we need your help to keep up our momentum, secure the future of the space and enable us to keep supporting theatre-makers, emerging artists and the community theatre of Swindon and beyond.


In a world of constantly depleting funding for the arts, it can be a struggle for charities and small theatres to survive. If you love coming to the Shoebox and value the work we do, please subscribe to our new ‘Friends of the Shoebox’ scheme! Not only will you be supporting our work, you will also get a number of great benefits too.

Become a friend!

For only £30 a year you will receive...

  • Invitations to exclusive theatre showcases and scratch performances

  • Be the first to hear about our programme of performances and workshops

  • Exclusive special offers on tickets for selected performances and events

  • Exclusive invites to the events we throw for our artists (which often include free drinks and food!)
