You’ve reached this page because you’re interested in making a donation to Mercury, and we can’t thank you enough.

Regional theatres and local arts organisations are suffering hugely during these uncertain times, and our path to reopening is still unclear. We have been blown away by the support from our audiences so far and can’t wait to welcome you all back.

As a registered charity, we rely on your support to ensure we can continue to tell new stories and provide a great night out. Donations to the theatre can go towards anything and everything from school workshops to Dame dresses, as well as our £9.8 million Mercury Rising project which is now in its final stages.

However big or small your donation, you’ll be helping us to champion new talent and new ideas whilst continuing to offer you a fantastic theatre experience. Thank you.

General Donations

Regional theatre and local arts organisations are suffering hugely during these unprecedented times. At the Mercury, we were midway through out exciting Mercury Rising capital project when the pandemic hit, affecting the timeline, fundraising and projected income for the rest of the year.

The Mercury Theatre is a registered charity. If you’re able to add a donation today your gift will help us to continue our work on stage, in the community and with young people across Essex.
