Leave a Legacy


Leave a Legacy

Why leave a gift to the National Theatre in your Will?

Gifts in Wills provide an important source of support towards safeguarding the work of the National Theatre for future generations. Leaving a legacy is something that absolutely anyone can do and it will provide essential support for every aspect of the National Theatre’s work both on stage and off from productions and touring to learning projects and the development of new work at the Studio. 

The future of the National Theatre should be one in which we can strive to create inspiring and daring theatre and produce ground-breaking initiatives which enable us to share our work with the broadest possible audience.

Your most personal and lasting gift can be of any size. Leaving just 1% of your estate can make a difference and will help future audiences to discover the wonder of theatre and enjoy the National as you do today. To find out more about how to leave a gift in your Will and how legacy gifts have an impact on the NT’s work, please read our Remember your National Theatre brochure or our How Legacies Help page.

How to Leave a Gift In your Will

Unless a different wish is expressed, all legacy gifts will be directed to the Legacy Fund from which grants will be made every year, to support the National Theatre’s work. The Legacy Fund is administered by the Trustees of the Royal National Theatre Foundation, a registered charitable trust to which all legacy payments will be granted upon receipt.

The National Theatre Foundation was created with the aim of securing the future of the NT. Its support reaches all areas of the National’s important and wide-ranging work and enables us to plan for the future with confidence.

Further details about how to leave a gift in your Will and suggested wording can be found in the Remember Your National Theatre brochure.
