Light a Spark

Ignite a love of theatre in young people

Remember your first memory of the theatre? The buzz as you take your seat. The ripple of excitement that goes through the audience as the lights go down. Being wowed by the show.

It can be magical. But not everyone gets that opportunity. We want more people to have that special moment where they encounter theatre for the first time. And that’s what our Light a Spark campaign is all about – creating magical first theatre experiences for all.

Your support will help us...

  • offer year-long bursaries to our amazing Youth Theatre
  • inspire young carers and refugees with theatre workshops
  • bring more local families into CFT with free, fun events
  • give young people their first theatre job as an apprentice, trainee or practitioner
