The Pandemicists

Beating the pandemic: supporting staff & artists

The arts are what makes life worth living. In these unparalleled, unexpected times, every arts organisation is fighting for its life.

Our goal is to keep the artistic community of Grange Park Opera intact and we have neither government funding nor reserves. Having lost all ticket income, we are asking ticket buyers to consider donating the price of their tickets rather than requesting a credit note or refund.

Just as you brought about the miracle of building the Theatre in the Woods, we hope you will again pull with us.

Your donation is hugely appreciated and will hail a bright new day.

Thank you for being part of the Grange Park Opera family.

The Pandemicists will be celebrated in print and in person.


Thank you for being part of the Grange Park Opera family and pulling with us. We are close to covering our central costs and, in time for Easter, we have started to distribute a discretionary fund for those artists and technicians most in need. The fund is in excess of £150k.
