|The Theatrical Guild is a charity uniquely supporting those NOT in front of the curtain. We help crew members, electricians, stage door assistants, box office, ushers and many more all throughout the UK in times of need.
We assist in a variety of ways including: offering financial support, sponsorship for education / re-training within the industry , one off grants, ongoing aid and access to counselling.
The Theatrical Guild was started in 1891 by the actress Kittie Carson. Over 120 years later we are still dedicatedto helping the unsung heroes in theatre throughout the UK in times of need.
We're having an evening of jazz in the Elgar Room of the Royal Albert Hall on Wednesday 18 March 2015. In a one off fundraiser, Joe Stilgoe and Gary Williams will be performing together and we'd love it if you could join us. For further information see our 'latest news' page or contact the office.
