Curve (Leicester Theatre Trust) is a cultural charity (registration number 230708) that enables people of all ages and backgrounds to access, participate in and learn from the arts, nurturing new and emerging talent, and creating world-class theatrical experiences.

We reinvest all money raised into our building and the work that we do, both on and off our stages. Curve is an exciting place to be but we need your help to do more –  more engagement opportunities, more community projects, more learning and participation initiatives and more shows.

‘Seeing my nephew (who has global development syndrome) fully engrossed in the performance was amazing, the relaxed atmosphere allowed him to be himself and we saw a more focused and calmer side to him that we had not been able to see before’  – Audience Member, The Cat in the Hat Relaxed Performance.
