Although investing in theatre can be high risk, it can potentially generate high returns and be a rewarding and sociable activity. Theatre audiences in the West End have grown year on year since 2008 reflecting a robust industry, which continues to buck the trend in the current economic climate.

photoFor a relatively low investment (typically £2,500-£5,000), investors may enjoy the following benefits:

  • Complimentary tickets
  • Invitation to opening night performances
  • Opportunities to the meet the cast and creative teams
  • Access to exclusive events – such as workshops, open dress rehearsals and play readings
  • Access to VIP house seats for shows across the West End
  • Regular sales information and production updates

In addition, investors will be in a position to benefit from the new Theatre Tax Relief, which allows theatres and productions to enjoy a subsidy previously only extended to the film industry.
