De Valois Legacy Circle and In Memorium Giving

Birmingham Royal Balletís recent new work was only made possible as a result of several generous legacy and in memorium gifts. Whether itís supporting new productions or enabling young people to access ballet for the first time, your gift in your will or in memory of a family member can have a significant impact on our Company too.

Many of our audiences tell us that coming to the ballet is a cherished activity that they share with loved ones, family and friends. Others enjoy evenings out at the ballet to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries or special occasions and many of our productions live long in the memory for that reason.

It costs more than £35,000 per day to run our world-class company, so every gift counts. Over the last few years, gifts have paid for new works like Aladdin, supported our creative talent to achieve world-class standards and provided essentials for dancers like pointe shoes and tutus.

In 2011, we officially launched the De Valois Legacy Circle: an initiative to involve, recognise and thank those individuals who tell us of their generous intention to remember Birmingham Royal Ballet in their wills. Our Circle is growing and it will leave an indelible mark on the Company, helping it to grow and flourish for future generations.

You too can help. Your gift could enable young people to participate in and enjoy ballet opportunities, help young dancers move up through the ranks or create new work. If youor a loved one have taken great pleasure from our performances, why not help others to discover and enjoy our productions in the future.
