Support Metta

12 years young. £10,000 to raise. Every donation matters.

We’re all grown up – since 2016 our street-dance and circus Jungle Book has been seen by over 35,000 people.

We have even BIGGER plans – a hip hop musical of Wind in the Willows! a Nigerian Great Expectations!

Over the past three years Metta’s Artistic Director Poppy Burton-Morgan has raised over half a million pounds. And Metta Theatre is a charity – so all profits are ploughed straight back into making our shows bigger and better.

Now we’re asking you to help.

And every contribution really does make a difference to our work:

£ 500.00 – Pays a performer’s wages for one week on tour.
£ 250.00 – Buys the recycled paper on which we print an entire year’s worth of scripts.
£ 100.00 – Buys the fabric for a bespoke costume.
£ 50.00 – Buys a set of glow in the dark juggling balls.
£ 30.00 – Buys the mountboard needed to make a miniature model of the set design for a production.

Thank you!

This year we have already raised £2800 - so we are well on our way to reaching our target, but we need your help!
