Alphabetti’s building is currently closed due to Covid-19 and like so many is facing significant uncertainty. We are working hard while the venue is shut and look forward to a future where we can welcome you all safely back to us.

On average, each year Alphabetti has 300 performances providing work for 2,000 artists and welcoming 13,500 audience members. 60% of our programme is part of our Pay What You Feel ticketing scheme and 39% tickets are £10 or under.  With our doors closed we're losing vital income, if you could help with a donation whatever the size, we'd greatly appreciate it. 


Despite the pandemic, we remain committed to our communities, audiences and artists. We launched 9 new writing micro-commissions – LISTEN UP - to increase under-represented voices in North East theatre. As well as ‘BETTi RECOMMENDS’, a weekly curated selection of free bitesize online cultural content, and free monthly online shows/performances exclusive to Alphabetti.

All our online work is free but if you can we ask that you donate to support the work we do.
