The Big Give Christmas Challenge!

Sold out

Please note that Day 1 of the Big Give is now complete and matched funding begins again tomorrow morning at 10am. Thank you for your interest and please get in touch with Melanie on 020 8743 3584 if you have any questions about your gift.

Can you give the Bush a gift this Christmas? Donations of £5-£5000 will be matched. Email your pledge to [email protected] and we’ll remind you in December!

The Bush Theatre is one of the lucky charities selected to benefit from the Big Give’s Christmas Challenge this year.

All donations of £5-£5000 made to us via the site (www.biggive.org.uk) between 6-11th December will be DOUBLED!

We have been in our beautiful new home, the Old Shepherd’s Bush Library, for 1 year now and have received a warm response from audiences and the local community. We tried, tested and learnt lots in our new home and have mounted 2 successful seasons and our first ever Festival of new writing, RADAR 2012.

But we can do more. In order to make full use of the Library building we are raising money for a dedicated fund to support creation of work across all 3 of our spaces: the main house, studio and the attic. The Artistic Director’s Fund will discover and support artists who create new work in a range of ways to animate the different creative spaces in our building.

We’ll be able to deliver more opportunities to writers and artists specifically those from our local community and offer a fantastic programme that regularly ensures all of the building is buzzing with new work.

All Big Give donors will be acknowledged within our building and will be invited to a Big Give celebration party in 2013.

Hatching Phase by Ella Road

Ella Road, one of our Emerging Writers’ ruminates on having writer’s block. There’s a tree outside my bedroom window That didn’t give any apples last year. I’d watched it carefully from my desk.

Bush Staff Recommends: LGBT+ Artists

February is an exciting time for reflection on all things LGBT+ as we celebrate communities past and present. Heterosexist society has meant that the great contributions of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Asexual, Non-Binary and Intersex individuals have been systematically down-played, or entirely erased. LGBT+ History Month is a fantastic opportunity to combat this, sparking discussion and opening powerful…
