HighTide is run by a small team of passionate people. We are supported by Arts Council England within their National Portfolio, and by an array of Trust and Foundations. Corporate support is given by Lansons, and a group of generous individuals give us large gifts that mean we can champion artists and maintain our record of producing the best new work for audiences nationwide.

Over the years we’ve identified and nurtured artists who have gone on to lead British culture including writers Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and The Cursed Child in the West End, Shameless, Kiri, National Treasure for Channel 4), Ella Hickson (Oil and The Writer, Almeida Theatre) and Vinay Patel (Murdered By My Father and Doctor Who for BBC). Directors who have begun careers with HighTide include Michael Longhurst (now Artistic Director, Donmar Warehouse), Kate Wasserberg (Artistic Director, Out of Joint) and Roy Alexander Weise (Co-Artistic Director, Manchester Royal Exchange).

We do all of this from our base in Suffolk, where we also help children get involved with theatre through our Summer Connect programme; offer writing residencies and support for emerging writers; and create bespoke performances for local communities and festivals.

We are truly grateful to our supporters and friends, without whom we wouldn’t be able to make the artistic ideas happen; or to work with young people; or to put on our festivals; or to give away theatre tickets to people who wouldn’t have access to them otherwise. This support is invaluable.

We like our friends very much – and who doesn’t want more friends? If you feel like you’ve got room in your life for one more friend, why not click the DONATE button and give to HighTide. Even better, if you’re a UK Taxpayer, PayPal can reclaim Gift Aid, adding 25% to your donation. You can make a one-off donation, or create a monthly donation – the choice is yours.

Thank you for your friendship and support.
