The Donmar Warehouse
Barclays is the principal sponsor of the Donmar Warehouse – a 250 seat subsidised theatre in the heart of London's West End.
The Donmar is a hot-house for talented new writers, for re-appraising European classics and for British and American drama and musical theatre.
The theatre has an international standing, garnering critical acclaim at home and abroad and with a particular reputation for artistic excellence, presenting some of London's most memorable theatrical experiences and showcasing the talents of some of the country's finest actors, writers, directors and designers.
In November 2012 Barclays and the Donmar partnered to create Barclays Front Row, a ticket initiative that gives audiences access to £10 front row seats throughout the run of each production. Two-thirds of the front row seats are held back for all performances and put on sale every Monday for the week of performances two weeks later. These tickets are available with no booking fee, through all normal channels.
In 2011, we extended our sponsorship to include the purchase and renovation of Donmar Dryden Street, a state-of-the-art rehearsal, education and administration space just 3 minutes walk from the theatre. Donmar Dryden Street brings together all of the Donmar’s off-stage activities under one roof for the first time including rehearsals, administration and education work and opened in March 2014.
