Financial donations

All financial donations, large or small, are very welcome and will have a lasting benefit to all users of the Theatre Collection. For example, a small gift would buy a conservation-grade archive storage box or a book for the library, while a more substantial donation would help us continue our valuable outreach work, such as our public exhibition programme.

Most importantly, we always need funds to enable us to carry out vital cataloguing work. We are currently seeking major donations to cover staff and conservation costs for specific cataloguing projects: to enable an individual collection to be catalogued, conserved and made available via our online database.

Donate online or by phone


Donate by post or in person

You can also donate by post by sending us a cheque. Donations of money may be sent to:

The Director
University of Bristol Theatre Collection
Vandyck Building
Cantocks Close
Bristol, UK

Cheques should be made payable to 'The University of Bristol Theatre Collection'. If you are a taxpayer you can ensure that more of your money comes to the Collection by filling in a Gift Aid Declaration, available from us.


You might wish to remember the Theatre Collection in your will. A bequest to the Theatre Collection will cost you nothing today, but through your gift you can be sure that our theatrical heritage is preserved for future generations to study and enjoy.

To find out more, contact the University Campaigns and Alumni Relations Office, who are more than happy to help.
