Hello and welcome to Team Soho’s Brighton Half Marathon page!

This February, we’re putting on our trainers and heading to the seaside to run the Brighton Half Marathon, and all to raise money for Soho Theatre.

We are an incredibly busy venue which produces a huge programme of new theatre, comedy and cabaret, but the work we put on our stages is only half the story. We are running to raise money for all the things that happen behind the scenes – and we’d really love your support.

We’re aiming to raise £20,000, which will:

  • Help to fund Soho Young Company, our education programme for 16-26 year olds
  • Support our Soho Young Playwrights Programme
  • Go towards the costs of installing a new air-cooling system at Soho Theatre

We invest all we can into putting the best and most exciting work on our stages while keeping ticket prices affordable, but we are also committed to supporting emerging talent and enabling everybody to benefit from the arts. You can help us by making a donation today.

We’ve got a variety of Soho staff members getting ready to run, and our Team Coach Shappi Khorsandi is ready with a whistle and a stopwatch to help them along the way. The Team consists of: Rose Abderabbani, James Atkinson, Livvy Brinson, Lee Griffiths, Gemma Leader, Steve Lock, Rob Dumitru, Catherine Mckinney and Beccy Rimmer.

Soho Theatre has been awarded Arts Catalyst funding. This is an Arts Council England scheme designed to help us attract new donations.

Any donation you make today to support our run will be matched by the Catalyst fund, doubling the value of your support.

Please support our efforts - it will make a real difference!

A bit more about what we are raising money for

SYC
Soho Young Company inspires young people from all backgrounds and offers them brilliant educational opportunities in writing for the stage, comedy and cabaret. We reach out to low-income groups in Westminster and the surrounding areas to give them the same opportunities to learn new skills and raise their aspirations.

Soho Young Playwrights

Sohp Young Playwrights Programme works with children in local schools at a very important time in their lives, when they are about to embark on the transition to secondary school. They are typical inner city London schools – above average free school meals, pupils from a broad range of racial, religious and cultural backgrounds, tens of different languages being spoken. Teachers love the scheme because they see children take part who become more attentive and more enthusiastic about learning.

Air-cooling system
Our creaky old air-cooling system just isn’t up to the job anymore, and it can struggle to maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the theatre. It’s also inefficient, which means it uses more energy and water than it should. With education activities and workshops during the day and an average of six performances a night, we want to make sure everyone who takes part in an activity at Soho Theatre and our audiences enjoy a comfortable environment.

So, this winter, instead of sitting in a cosy bar enjoying a New Year's pint, we'll be out training… getting hot and sweaty so you don’t have to!
