I’m not going to start by listing some of the most amazing things Creation has achieved in the last 24 years. The moments of magic will be different for all of you, they’ll be sunny days and Christmas outings, family trips and first dates and at the heart of it all that little something extra that makes a Creation show a Creation show. We’ve achieved all this with no regular funding, relying on ticket sales, donations and a lot of elbow grease.
It’s pretty true to say though that the only thing that ever holds us back is lack of money. We’re never short of stunning venues, incredible stories or inspiring directors, but we can’t always make the projects we want to make in the way we want to make them because that kind of magic costs money. To help us make bigger, bolder, better shows in the future we’re opening a ‘Fund of Infinite Possibilities’ and we’ve secured match funding for any donations made into the fund.
If we can raise £5,000 by 31 March it will be matched by an anonymous donor.
