Soho Theatre’s mission is to produce new work, nurture new writers and artists, and develop new audiences.
Soho Theatre is London’s most vibrant venue for new theatre, comedy and cabaret.
We play a distinctive role in the British cultural landscape at the point where these forms converge. We create and present new live performance and we work with the most exciting artists in the UK. Our audience is younger, more culturally and economically diverse, more adventurous than the traditional theatregoer.
Behind the scenes we work extensively with young people and unheard voices; we are an incubator of artistic talent.
Soho Theatre is a registered charity and social enterprise. Public funding received from Arts Council England and charitable giving enables us to leverage considerably more from earned income generated through ticket, bar and other sales. We contribute more to government in tax, VAT and NI than we receive in grants.
We are now implementing a new Development strategy which aims to increase philanthropic support at all levels and embed fundraising across the organisation.
