The Little Angel Theatre

The Gift of Puppetry - Puppets for All

Little Angel Theatre’s Puppets for All scheme provides free tickets to disadvantaged children and families so that they can experience the joy of theatre. We believe nobody should miss out on theatre or creative arts projects due to social or economic circumstances.

Situation

All of our full-price tickets are subsidised, however, despite our efforts to keep prices down, we appreciate that the cost of our tickets is still a barrier to some. London has the highest rate of child poverty of any English region. The pandemic has amplified inequalities and many families are facing increased financial and social barries. Barriers include a lack of knowledge as to what theatre-going involves and a sense that they dont belong.

Solution

Through our Puppets For All Scheme we want to ensure that cost isn't a barrier to attendance. The scheme is available to anyone who receives state benefits and otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford to visit our theatre. By registering to be part of the scheme members will have access to tickets for our shows accross the year. We promote the scheme through partner organisations to ensure that those most at need who would benefit from the scheme know about it and have access.

  • My daughter, husband and I had the opportunity to see The Smartest Giant and we absolutely loved it. It was a funny, charming, sweet, great show and without this scheme, we wouldn't have been able to see this. We massively appreciated this opportunity that has provided us with a fantastic memory.

  • We were able to book tickets on Fathers Day and have a day out as a family which did not cost us any more than sweets and drink for the kids and we were very grateful for the time together. Thank you for providing this for our family.
