Belvoir St Theatre

Belvoir St Theatre

On Tuesday 31st October between 9am and 9pm, Belvoir St Theatre is bursting to announce their first ever Giving Day, where all donations made will be quadrupled by Belvoir's matching partners. Aiming to raise $1 million, funds raised will go towards renovating the foyer and providing additional bathrooms, making them more accessible for guests and reducing the infamous interval bathroom queues. For example, thanks to the matching partners, if you were to donate $10, Belvoir will receive $40 towards the renovations. Prior to this, the building hasn't been renovated since 2006. Belvoir is a not-for-profit charity and all donations made to Belvoir over $2 are tax-deductible. More Information
