Angels of Angel

Join our new Angels of Angel network and become a key supporter of the future of King's Head Theatre productions. 

 




Angels of Angel is a unique fund and supporter network of King’s Head Theatre specifically focussed on the creation and production of new theatrical productions.

Before the pandemic, the theatre - located in Islington, an area known for its plethora of grassroots, independent arts venues - was known for producing work in-house far exceeding in scale its intimate 110 seats. These productions often transferred into the West End, including our Olivier award-winning La Bohéme which won Best New Opera and the long-running touring and Edinburgh Fringe production Trainspotting Live.

However, producing theatre is risky and almost all of the money required is spent well before tickets are sold. And so in 2020, when we were closed for over a year and our reserves were significantly impacted by the wider impact of the pandemic, so too was our ability to actually capitalise and produce the shows as we once did.

 

What is the Fund?

 

We’re creating a network of Theatre Angels, in Angel, whose fund will specifically be used to create and produce new work in our new theatre. It will be used specifically to support new shows. This means that your donation won’t support the creation of just one production, but an ongoing range of productions. As the ticket income earned from one show, will simply be put back into capitalising the next one. If the show makes a surplus then the fund will increase, or decrease if it makes a loss, but we will always be striving for shows keep the fund at a healthy level.

Whilst surpluses will be kept in the fund, to support the continuation of producing theatre, donating to the fund, much like making a theatre investment, will enable you unique access to the shows and put you into a community of like-minded theatre aficionados.
