Supporting Aberdeen's Independent Stage

Aberdeen Arts Centre is a registered charity and receives funding from Aberdeen City Council to help support our work. 75% of our income comes from our community visiting our venue, ticket sales and donations. As council budgets are reduced and focus on statutory services, funding is not guaranteed for the future. Like all non profit charities we need your support to continue to thrive and make extraordinary things happen for our community in Aberdeen and the North East.
Whenever you make a gift to Aberdeen Arts Centre you play a crucial role in providing space in our community for wonderful performances and inspiring creative learning opportunities into the next 60 years.

Donate online – make a one-off donation, or donate regularly through our website. You can choose to remain anonymous or get in touch to become a patron and be recognised for your support

Donate when you book a ticket — even rounding up your ticket to the nearest pound or adding an extra ticket price donation is so helpful and we really appreciate everything our audiences can give us

Come and see a show — let us entertain you! Spend time with us enjoying a local group perform a play or a musical, or come and see one of our very popular bands or tribute acts

Share our What’s On guide with your family and friends — spreading the word about the productions on our stage and our workshops makes a big difference

60 for 60!

To celebrate 60 years of community arts activity at Aberdeen Arts Centre, we're raising funds to put new chairs in our recently refurbished Children's Theatre. We believe our community deserves the best experience we can offer when they are in our building. The redevelopment of our Children's Theatre to provide step-free access and accessible facilities is nearly complete and refurbishment of the theatre space to make it more flexible and step-free is underway. We will also install new lighting and sound equipment to provide the best facilities we can for our local amateur and professional communities.

To celebrate our 60th anniversary and add the finishing touches to an exciting phase of development, we need your help to get 60 for 60: 60 chairs for our Children's Theatre, one for each year we have been serving the community.

Your contribution will help audiences sit in comfort watching performances from local amateur groups, local young people and local professionals who are developing new and exciting work with our support.
