NST, Nuffield Southampton Theatres | What's On Southampton

Why Support Us

Nuffield Southampton Theatres is one of the country's leading producing theatre companies.

NST is a registered charity. We make theatre - we write it, design it, cast it, build it, and put it on our stages, here in Southampton and out on tour nationally and internationally.

We are dedicated to enhancing the lives of our local community and nurturing the next generation of artists. By becoming a friend or donating you'll be supporting our Youth Theatre, our community work and Laboratory - our unique training programme for emerging artists.

We rely on the generous support of members, donors and funders to help produce new work, nurture the next generation of artists and deliver our community and youth programmes.

Here are just a few ways your donation makes an impact




We work with young people and schools across our city to provide free tickets, training, arts award qualifications and a wide range of participatory projects. For many young people we work with, this is their first experience of live theatre.




NST are committed to offering young and disadvantaged people in our community the opportunity to attend a performance or participate in an activity or workshop free of charge. Your donation makes this possible




We want NST to be a place where everyone’s voices can be heard and their stories represented. Our community outreach department works with many local groups to involve them in our programming, see the work we make and to join us for special events.




Our Laboratory department nurtures local artists providing opportunities at every stage of their careers. We support local artists to create their own productions, provide training and mentoring, as well as supporting five year long associate positions for rising directors, producer and designers.



Without your support all this work would not be possible.
