We Are Asking For Support

Join the communities helping the Citizens Theatre to write its next act.

We need to raise £1.6M to unlock the potential of our remarkable building, and provide audiences, artists and the local community with a Citizens Theatre that everyone can be proud of.

We are nearly there, but there is still a way to go and we need your help to secure our future.

Your support is vital to our success and will ensure that we can continue to produce unforgettable theatre in a world class venue showcasing Scotland’s artistic talent for decades to come.

Generations of people have been touched by the work of the Citizens Theatre – we want to ensure that continues for future audiences, participants, artists and the people of Glasgow.

SOS – #Save Our Statues

To mark International Women’s Day, this week we’re celebrating our beautiful muses, who have been watching over our foyer for several years. They’re now needing your help to take pride of place in our redeveloped building, and inspire future generations of theatre-goers and Glaswegians.

They’ll soon be moving out of our foyer, and into a more prominent position on the exterior of the redeveloped Citizens Theatre. To get the ladies ready for their big move, they need a bit of TLC. The restoration of each statue will cost £10,000.

With just 100 donations of £100 each, we can restore one of these beautiful statues to take pride of place atop our redeveloped Citizens Theatre, a landmark for the city and for the Gorbals.

Make a donation of £100, or any amount, towards the redevelopment of the Citizens Theatre Muses here.

Sponsor part of the new building

From taps, to mirrors, from £5 to £10,000 – choose a part of our new home to sponsor!

You can choose an object to sponsor from a dressing room light bulb for £5 all the way up to £10,000 for a music system.

Every pound of your building sponsorship goes to the We Are Citizens campaign to extend and transform the Citizens Theatre by 2020! Thank you.

If you’d rather make a donation over the phone, or receive details of our regular Direct Debit giving, please call our friendly Development Team on 0141 418 6258.
