Every pound that we make will be matched £ for £ by Arts Council England through their Catalyst scheme.
Strike A Light is a registered charity and since our first festival in 2013 we have:
- presented over 30 national touring shows
- produced and supported Gloucestershire based artists to make shows that have toured nationally
- enabled over 2,500 children and young people to see theatre and dance for the first time and take part in life-changing participation projects.
We really appreciate all of our supporters and funders and for any of you who are able to pay £500 for the event you will be credited throughout the year as a Festival Supporter on our website.
As part of our commitment to ensuring that all of our events are accessible we have a limited amount of £10 and £25 tickets; these will be sold on a first-come-first-served basis.
Please join us for this glitzy celebration. We can’t wait to see you.
