Every word counts

Giving to Stagetext

We're all moved in!

Over the last 10 years Stagetext have been happily sharing an office with VocalEyes, our sister charity, in Spitalfields. It was lovely but it became unaffordable, the rent was doubling, and we couldn't justify remaining.

Because of this we decided to move together to the Elephant and Castle , an up and coming area, which offers more affordable rent but with easy access to the heart of London’s culture.

We're now at home at 81 County Street, London, SE1 4AD, and we couldn't be happier!

However, we do need your help...

We will need to raise £20,000  to help us pay for a wheelchair lift, adapting the toilets, adding ramps, and installing flashing alarms, to ensure that the new office is fully accessible for staff and visitors.

We discovered it would be more affordable to make these alterations to a new office, rather than move to somewhere already accessible, but we need to raise the money to help make this happen.

As a national charity, Stagetext supports captioning and live subtitling services at over 500 performances and 200 talks and tours annually.

Each year we rely on the generous donations from our supporters to raise the £65,000 needed to maintain the level of work we do.

You can help people like Deafinitely Girly, a theatre lover and deaf blogger who said this about Stagetext. “I went to see King Lear at Donmar Warehouse with Derek Jacobi, with Stagetext captions, and I sobbed, held my breath and came out completely exhausted by the amazing work I had just witnessed. Stagetext saved my life.”

  • A donation of £30 means we could caption Hamlet’s soliloquy in all its glory.
  • A donation of £100 could provide captions for the whole of Circle of Life from The Lion King so that families can sing along!
  • A donation of £1200 spread over a year could provide captions for a whole performance for hundreds of people to enjoy together.

Any donations, big or small, are greatly appreciated and if you believe everyone deserves to have access to the arts please donate to Stagetext today – because captions speak louder than words.
