Miracle Van

Miracle goes the distance, so that you don't have to. Over the past 10 years our iconic Miracle Van has driven to over 650 locations with more than 12 productions. All this fun and frolics doesn't come without a bit of wear and tear. Please help us buy a new van.

    Need

    Cornwall's beautiful humid climate plays havoc on the underbelly of motor vehicles. Our trusty Mercedes Sprinter has gone and gone all rusty, and as much as it has done us proud, it is very much on its last legs. On average we clock up a whopping 13030 miles per tour. We have to have a vehicle to transport our cast and set to all the wonderful far flung places we visit each year because that is our job! The problem is, this beautiful van will not be up to the job much longer. We need a new van.

    Solution

    We are applying to various trusts and foundations to secure funds for a new van. In the mean time, if we can collect as many donations as possible from generous people like you, then we will be able to use this as match funding making our case all the stronger. Please help!
    £50 will cover the cost of some wing mirrors.
    £150 covers the wheels.
    £550 covers the gearbox.
    It all adds up and with your help we can put this all together to buy one fully functioning Miracle van. Vroom Vroom!!

  • Impact

    Impact

    We travel over 13000 miles per tour so that our audience doesn't have to. Bringing inventive, lively and characterful theatre to many far flung places. Miracle pops-up on beaches, cliff tops, amphitheatres, gardens, castles and even tin mines.

    Miracle's pink van is somewhat of an icon around Cornwall and beyond. Letting you know that the show is in town. Once we have secured enough funds the new van will be Miracle pink with our new branding. But will it have your name on it?

    Risk

    If our current van breaks down then we will have to hire a replacement van to make sure that the show goes on. This will of course be costly though and this is why we are raising money to invest in a new van now, as a preventative measure.
    All donations will be put towards keeping Miracle's show on the road, whether that be covering the cost of a wing mirror, insurance or the petrol costs of getting to each show.

    Reporting

    Donate £25 or more and you can book Love Miracle priority seating.
    Donate £1000 or more and your name will be printed on the new van as the power behind Miracle. As long as you fill in your details on here, we will have email address so will be able to keep you up to date with our progress.

    Beneficiaries

    Audiences of 25,000 people a year, and around 20 cast and crew, benefit from our projects.
