Leave a Gift in your Will


There are more stories to be shared, opportunities yet to be experienced and memories to be made here. By leaving a gift in your will, you can help secure Curve’s future.

A gift to Curve both means and does so much. Through our work, we are constantly striving to increase knowledge by opening minds to new possibilities. Our space also contributes to providing shared experiences and reducing social exclusion by encouraging local communities to share Curve with us.

As a charity, we need your help in keeping Curve accessible for future generations. Any gift we receive, no matter how large or small, makes a great contribution to our ongoing activity.


Gifts without restriction offer flexibility to adapt to the ever-changing landscape across the arts. Your gift to Curve will contribute significantly to wherever the need is greatest, and you can be reassured that it will make a lasting contribution to the future of access and participation in the arts here at Curve.

However, please do let us know your wishes if you would like your gift to be used for a particular area of interest such as;

  • Access
  • Curve Young Company
  • Community Outreach
  • Artist Development

We can then help you to find the best wording to reflect your wishes and ensure your generous support has the most impact.

A lifetime of theatre going, especially in Leicester, has enhanced my life in so many ways. Furthermore, the work that Curve does with young people boosts their confidence and develops their creativity. It helps them to fully express themselves and teaches them many skills. All of those things are vital and practical tools for the upcoming generation to succeed in whatever field they may choose to follow. I want to recognise and support this work by leaving a legacy to Curve in my will.’
