Support Us

Help us to nurture the outstanding and diverse talent that lights up the performing arts world year after year.

ArtsEd Friends

“Making it in the performing arts isn’t easy. It takes guts, determination, ambition and funding. As a Friend of ArtsEd, you will help talent and passion win out over financial hardship. You will ensure that we can continue to keep our doors open to all.”

–  Chris Hocking, Principal

Our students have a passion for performance. A passion that is fuelled by our expert and committed staff, and nurtured within ArtsEd’s uniquely welcoming and joyful atmosphere. With generous support from individuals, trusts and businesses, we are able to enrol students at ArtsEd based on their talent, not their ability to pay.

If you share our passion for widening access to the performing arts donate today and become an ArtsEd Friend.

“Studying at ArtsEd has always been my dream. A year on, it’s still surreal and humbling to even have my place here. Things are currently very busy, sometimes leaving at 7pm (having been in school since 8am), but I can’t imagine myself anywhere else. I love what I do and I’m so lucky that I still am able to do it, all thanks to your support.”

Gift Aid & Tax Effective Giving

ArtsEd is a registered charity. If you are a UK tax payer and pay UK income or capital gains tax, any gift you make will be eligible for Gift Aid, enabling ArtsEd to claim an additional 25p for every £1 donated at no additional cost to you.

Higher rate tax payers might also be entitled to claim additional tax relief on donations. This equates to 25p in personal tax relief on every £1 donated, effectively reducing the actual cost of your gift.

You can make a single Gift Aid declaration to cover all past, present and future donations. However, if your circumstances change and you cease to pay tax, or you change your name or private home address, please let ArtsEd know.

ArtsEd Friends & Gift Aid

Your Friends contribution will be allocated as follows:

  • Fan donation: £120
  • Admirer donation: £450 (benefits, £50)
  • Enthusiast donation: £1,425 (benefits, £75)
  • Champion donation: £2,800 (benefits, £200)

Benefits can be purchased separately at this price without making a donation. The online payment is set at the combined amount for each level of membership. If you would like to purchase the benefits package separately without donating, please contact Victoria Noël, Development Manager on 020 8987 6652 or at
