MAYK Theatre CIC is a small organisation with big ideas. We currently deliver Mayfest and many other public projects throughout the year.

We are only able to continue doing the work we do through the generosity of our funders and supporters. Ticket sales only make up about 15% of our annual income, with a further 30% from public funding. We need to raise the rest ourselves in order to be able to continue supporting and presenting the most inspiring artists for our audience.

Please consider supporting us and help us make extraordinary things happen.


You can make a one-off donation and know you're giving a helping hand to the work we do. Your donations go directly into supporting the creation and presentation of exciting new theatre. DONATE

As a Community Interest Company, charitable trusts and foundations play a crucial role in helping us achieve our aims.
