“He who drinks, they say, of that miraculous water lives forever”

from At the Hawk’s Well (W. B Yeats)

Since 1982 the Hawk’s Well has been at the cultural heart of Sligo and has enlivened, entertained and amused the people of the region. The theatre is firmly rooted as a social and cultural hub in the North West. Over 50,000 people came to Hawk’s Well to watch a show or take part in a workshop last year, however our artistic success doesn’t translate into financial security. Few people realise that we are a registered charity. Public funding only makes up an average of 35% of our income, so we rely on ticket sales and generous donations from individuals and companies to survive. Our core funding has been significantly reduced over the past number years so we need your support.

With your help we can develop and support Ireland’s theatre artists and musicians and continue to play a vital role in the social and culture life of Sligo. Whether you are an individual wishing to become a patron (Friend) or make a donation, or a company seeking sponsorship opportunities, your support is invaluable to us. It means we can continue to grow and flourish by creating inspirational cultural experiences that are priceless to our audience.

.”for it is always ourselves we see upon the stage” (W.B. Yeats).
