Buy a tile and help save our roof

Buy a tile and help save our roof

posted 23 Apr 2021

Our latest fundraising campaign, Buy A Tile, has gone live. It is part of our wider Raise the Roof appeal that we launched last year. We urgently need to raise £45,000 in order to replace our theatre roofs. Without these repairs to our leaky roofs, we risk damage to the fabric of our beautiful theatre, which is a Grade II listed building. 

Our theatre has been staging shows and entertaining local communities in York for over 85 years. The roof repairs are essential for safeguarding the future of our theatre so we can continue entertaining communities in York for years to come. 

For more information about our campaign, please email: buyatile@jrtheatre.co.uk; or phone: 01904 501935.

Join the conversation, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.
