Guiding and supporting the theatre makers of the future

Celebrating 5 Years of Bursary Awards


We were in the middle of preparations for a big 5 Year birthday celebration when COVID struck and the UK went into its first lockdown in 2020, closing our theatres for the longest period since the war. None of us knew what the impact would be and now, more than a year on, theatre is facing its biggest crisis for many years.

The MGCfutures Bursary Programme is a dynamic support fund dedicated to assisting the emerging careers of freelancers in every theatre discipline – creative, technical or administrative.

“at this stage of my career the recognition and support from MGCfutures will give me the confidence to take the next steps towards becoming a leader in the industry” 

Nisha Oza, theatre producer and Bursary recipient 2021

Our bursaries our needed now more than ever before and we would not be able to provide this support without your generosity.

Please help the future of theatre by giving us a 5 Year Birthday gift today!

Your donation will have a huge impact on the lives and careers of the UK’s emerging theatremakers.

Please donate £5 or £50 or an amount of your choice

Thank you
