Midsummer Magic (c) 16231623's vision is to use Shakespeare’s work to inspire, surprise and affect people.

You can help us continue to build a secure foundation so we can keep on producing five-star theatre performances, bespoke learning workshops, award-winning participatory activities and inspirational training sessions.

If you become a Supporter, you're not just becoming a "donor". We'll keep you up-to-date with what your backing is enabling us to do with a regular newsletter, offer you access to exclusive 1623 Supporters events (such as meeting the cast and crew), give you a great big "thank you" online, and offer you the opportunity to come see us perform for free. Your generosity would be helping to secure a long-term future for 1623.

You can find out how to become a Supporter below or get in touch to find out more.
