As a charitable foundation, the Isaac Theatre Royal relies on the events we host and kind donations to keep our doors open and our stage live. We are constantly working behind the scenes to bring world class entertainment to the people of Canterbury and everyone who visits. In order to do this, we rely on the generous support of individuals and businesses near and far that have a passion for the arts and the arts community. There are many ways you can get involved and become a sponsor of the Isaac Theatre Royal:
