Help save Hackney Empire – support our crowdfunder
Hackney Empire is facing the greatest challenge of its 120-year history.
Closing the doors because of the Covid-19 pandemic has been devastating for Hackney Empire: over 85% of our funding comes from our box office income.
Now whilst other industries are starting to open up, theatres which rely on bringing large numbers of people together remain under real threat. We are doing everything we can to safeguard Hackney Empire’s future but we need your support.
Whether you’ve laughed at our legendary comedy nights, danced at our gigs, been to the opera or been inspired by our young artists, or whether you come each year to experience the magic of our pantomime we need your help now to ensure Hackney Empire can re-open.
To be able to open our doors again at a safer time Hackney Empire needs to survive and we have launched a crowdfunding campaign to help us survive the immediate financial challenges that being closed has brought.
Every donation really does makes a difference.
If you love Hackney Empire and what it means to its communities, then please help. With your support Hackney Empire will re-open its doors and be there for all our audiences in the future.
A huge thank you to our supporters so far:
