Keep theatre in Ealing alive

The Questors Theatre has been closed to live performances since March due to Covid-19, and our normal income has ground a halt. Our theatre risks permanent closure, and we need your help as we strive to re-open. We were in the middle of presenting our 90th anniversary season when the pandemic struck and, in common with all other theatres, had to suspend our activities.

In all our 90 years as an independent theatre we’ve never faced any challenge like the Coronavirus pandemic. It’s devastated both livelihoods and live theatre. Indeed, the arts in all forms are under threat.

You can support us by making a donation and pledging on a reward to ensure we can afford the re-opening costs. This will help ensure we survive. Your donations will be used to help get us back up and running again. The more you donate, the better chance we have of survival. You can donate here:


We need your help to reach our goal of £75,000. Social distancing will reduce our seating capacity to just 25%, dramatically reducing our ability to earn the income we need to keep us going. Without this money to support our costs we may be forced to make painful decisions about teaching staff, student admissions and the production values that help to make The Questors the live theatre experience our community deserves.

Every pound you pledge will make a difference. We really need you help and support right now. To show our gratitude we have some exciting rewards in appreciation of your generosity. Please take a look at the pledge column for details.

We will be back. But your help is what we’re asking for now to secure our survival. Thank you.


A Message from our President, Dame Judi Dench

"I am privileged to have known The Questors Theatre for many years and have been their President since 1985. Now 90 years old, The Questors is at the forefront of the world of theatre, championing new playwrights, running an internationally recognised Student Acting Course, and a thriving Youth Theatre.  

Please support this campaign if you can. The future of The Questors, along with most other theatres in the country, is in danger. You can help save it. A world without theatre is unthinkable but at the moment this is a very real possibility.  With your support The Questors will re-open its doors and be there to create incredible experiences for all our audiences for many years to come. Thank you!"

A Message from our Vice-President, Oliver Ford Davies

"The Questors Theatre is one of the most celebrated amateur theatres in the UK. Located in the heart of Ealing, West London they have been at the forefront of theatre for 90 years. Unlike many professional theatres, The Questors are able to prepare for performances with Covid-19 restrictions. Nevertheless, this will cost a good deal of money at a time when they have had no income for 6 months. It is vital they succeed; they are a major contributor to the artistic life of West London, and they have a remarkable track record in developing talent across all areas of theatre – we need that now and for the future. Please support this Crowdfunding appeal for one of West London’s premier theatres, so beloved of its local community. We need The Questors back in production!"
