Unfortunately many families and individuals in our community are not able to afford the price of a ticket to see a show. As a start-up charity itself, The Horton is not able to meet all requests for free or discounted places. But we know there are people who do want to help others access the inspiring experiences that the arts can offer.
This festive season we are working with Epsom & Ewell Foodbank to distribute tickets for our festive family show Hikapee’s The Elf Factory. Offering tickets to those in our community who would love to treat their children but just cannot make ends meet.
Part of our vision for The Horton is to work together to bring the community together, using the power of art and live theatre to connect. We are asking for donations to help us spread the joy of live theatre, tickets start at £15, with £55 paying for a family to experience the show. Tickets will be given anonymously to those in need.
Helping local people in crisis
“The foodbank was there when we really needed it, it was an absolute lifeline.”
Nobody in our community should have to face going hungry. Epsom and Ewell Food Bank provides three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to them in crisis. They are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.
