Charity information

Almeida Theatre Company Limited

The Almeida exists to launch the next generation of British artists onto the world stage. A small room with an international reputation, we make work to excite and entertain every day.

Founded 1981

  • Mission statement

    As a registered charity, the theatre needs to raise more than £1. 5m each year, which is almost one third of our total income.

    A small room with an international reputation, the Almeida began life as a literary and scientific society. From the beginning, our building existed to investigate the world. Today, we make brave new work that asks big questions: of plays, of theatre and of the world around us. We bring together the most exciting artists to take risks; to provoke, inspire and surprise our audiences; to interrogate the present, dig up the past and imagine the future. We make live art to excite, enliven and entertain.

    We are committed to ensuring that every child and young person, whatever their circumstances, has the opportunity to access our unique theatre. In all, we aim to work with over 3,000 young people a year. As such, we offer a broad, high quality and innovative programme for young people, aged 5 – 25, through Almeida Projects. Almeida Projects has, up until now, focused primarily on the young people of Islington and its surrounding boroughs. Islington is a complex, culturally diverse, socially and economically deprived inner city borough. We work with schools that have an above average percentage of students receiving free school meals and a very high percentage of black and minority ethnic (BAME) students. We aim to inspire, challenge and engage them as participants and audience members and to ensure that we are reaching everyone.
