Putting on a fully staged production is expensive.  Costs include the hire of a theatre; sourcing costumes, scenery, props and music; paying an orchestra, MD and Director; publicity and programme production.  Then there are rehearsal expenses, which include room hire and accompanist fees.

If you would like to help us raise funds you can make a direct donation via Paypal using the button above.

But there are two other ways you can help us, one of which doesn’t cost you a penny.

Register with Worcester Community Lottery and support Opera Worcester here

Worcester Community Lottery is an exciting weekly lottery that raises money for good causes in Worcester.

Tickets for the lottery cost just £1 a week. Each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance to win a prize each week, with a top prize of £25,000! That’s a better chance of winning than the National Lottery or the Health Lottery.  Most weeks each ticket is entered into a bonus draw to win a prize which varies over time.  The latest bonus is detailed below.

Each ticket has six numbers and each number is between 0 and 9. There will be a draw every Saturday night when a six digit winning combination will be picked. Prizes will be given to players with tickets that match the first or last 2 to 6 numbers from the winning combination. Match all six and you win the jackpot!

Each month there is a Super Draw with a special prize.  You can buy tickets just for this monthly draw as an alternative to buying them each week.

Choosing Opera Worcester as your good cause means we get 50p of every £1 that you spend.
