Why not apply to the RABBLE Hardship Fund?

RABBLE want to create work that is accessible to everyone, so we’ve created The RABBLE Hardship Fund.

Amazingly, Aviva have selected our new mission as one of their 2021 Community Fund Projects, and the more money we can raise, the more money they are likely to give us…

The RABBLE Hardship fund will enable us to:

  • Offer 100% bursaries at RABBLE Foundations and Get Up On Stage for those unable to engage owing to financial restraints.
  • Offer free tickets to shows for more schools, individuals and families who are unable to attend owing to financial restrictions (in 2019, thanks to fundraising efforts, we got 900 Reading pupils into our shows).

The RABBLE Hardship Fund will create free opportunities for social-interaction, skill development & meaningful cultural engagement at high-calibre productions & classes.

If you would like to help towards the RABBLE Hardship Fund, you can donate a ticket by clicking the button below.
