Every word counts

Giving to Stagetext

Help us to celebrate our 20th birthday.

This has been an extraordinary year and we have all faced different challenges that the pandemic has brought into our lives. As a charity this has meant losing the majority of our work for live events and instead having to find new ways to bring you accessible arts and culture at home, what we like to call Armchair Access. Your donations will help us to continue to bring you access to the arts, in venues or at home, no matter what happens.

Despite this unusual year we feel that reaching 20 years old really is something to be proud of and the gift of a donation goes a long way to help us celebrate.

You can donate with one of our bronze, silver and gold packages shown below or you can donate any amount on our Virgin Giving page.

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.

A gift made to Stagetext in your Will makes a significant contribution to our future. All enquiries will be treated in the strictest confidence.


Does your company have a Payroll Giving Scheme? Would they consider sponsoring a captioned performance?
