We will only share this information if required by law, regulators or tax authorities.

We make use of our own service providers who may process data on our behalf and on our instructions (for example Wix, PayPal, Crowdfunder and ticketing providers). In these cases we require that these third parties comply strictly with our instructions and with data protection laws, for example around security of personal data.


Under the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR), the lawful bases we rely on for processing this information are: 

(a) We have a contractual obligation

When you make a purchase from us, sign up for a project, provide a service or make a donation to us, you are entering into a contract with us. In order to perform this contract we need to process and store your data. For example we may need to contact you by email or telephone to provide details of a project, in the case of cancellation of a show, or in the case of problems with your payment.

(b) We have a legitimate interest

An example of processing data using legitimate business interest is to provide anonymous sensitive data of participants on a programme to a funder as part of a report on the impact of the programme. We will only do this if there is no overriding prejudice to you by using your personal information in this way. We may also add you to our mailing list, with your consent, to keep you informed about our work.

(c) Your consent

You are able to remove your consent at any time. You can do this by emailing

We will ask for your consent to use data if it does not fall into either of the categories above. For example, if we are providing information to a funder that involves information about the health of participants and that information can be linked to an individual data subject, we will seek consent prior to using this information. This includes the use of photographs taken of participants. If at any time you change your mind and wish to withdraw consent for the use of your information, you can do this by contacting us. 

How we store your personal information 

Your information is securely stored either in a locked file cabinet or password protected on staff computers and Google Drive. For third-party software (as mentioned above), the data storage is in line with each company’s Privacy Policy. 

We keep personal identifiable information only for as long as it is needed. Certain financial information will be kept for 7 years based on HMRC requirements. We will then dispose of your information by shredding paper information and deleting digital information. Emails will be kept for 7 years.
