Mad about the Elephant?

Join our new Friends' Scheme!

The Blue Elephant is a small charity which reaches more than 5,000 people each year, through our professional and participation programmes. We aim to give creative opportunities to those who might otherwise miss out on them and we work really hard to keep offering as much as we can.

It's very tough, especially as funding gets tighter each year, and we would appreciate it so much if you joined our Friends' Scheme and helped us carry out this work. Even a small donation can make a big difference to us. For more information, please click here.

Information for companies

The Blue Elephant is renowned for giving a chance and genuine support to emerging or relatively unknown artists and taking the risk of showcasing challenging work

The Blue Elephant supports emerging artists and new work and produces or co-produces all shows here, by offering support-in-kind. We are currently particularly interested in working with artists and companies based in Southwark. If you are interested in bringing a project to the Blue Elephant, please send your script or proposal with potential dates and any background information about yourself or your company. Please include any filmed footage or information on future showcases/performances that we are able to attend so that we can better assess your work. Please note that we generally do not programme new productions of established scripts which have had runs in London previously.

We get a huge amount of inquiries about and submissions to produce work at Blue Elephant Theatre and we need to take time to consider them thoroughly so please do be aware that you may not receive a quick reply.
