Pleasance Patrons

Pleasance Patrons

The Pleasance is a non for profit charity and at the heart of our mission is Pleasance Futures. This development platform generates and funds a compelling range of unique opportunities to help launch careers across the UK, both on and off the stage. Providing these opportunities is why we exist.

 

For 35 years the Pleasance has been discovering and nurturing the very best of Fringe theatre in Edinburgh and London. The strands of Pleasance Futures are many and far reaching. As an organisation that receives no regular public subsidy, we require vital support from our Patrons in order to continue offering these remarkable opportunities. We hope you will help.  

 

Pleasance Patronage comes at a range of different suggested levels of donation, which offer exciting opportunities dedicated to bringing you closer to our work and the artists we support. With your support as a Pleasance Patron we can continue to inspire, develop and support the next generation of creatives. We hope you will help. There are four Pleasance Patron tiers, from Yellow to Platinum. Please click on the tabs above to find out more.

 

To get in touch with us, please email patrons@pleasance.co.uk
