Pay It Forward

Help us raise some smiles this christmas!

A trip to the Northcott as Christmas has become a tradition for Devon families. But for some, it’s a treat they can’t afford.

We work with local charities and community organisations to gift free tickets to young people and families who wouldn’t otherwise be able to go.

Dick Whittington 2023 artwork. Background: Blurred burgundy-tinted image of stars at night. Foreground: text reads (top to bottom) 'Exeter Northcott Theatre and Le Navet Bete present Dick Whittington'. The 'I' letter in 'dick' is shaped as a cat's paw.
A young girl wearing a blue and white-coloured hoodie leans forward onto a red theatre seat. She is resting he head on her crossed arms, and is looking up and smiling at what is happening off-camera on stage. She is surrounded by other young people, also engaged with what is happening off-camera on stage.

Oh my goodness, the joy I felt just watching those children just be children – they were totally lost in the moment… amazing!” – Foster Carer and Recipient of Pay It Forward


Some members of our groups experience a lot of difficulties, so to hear them say they hadn’t laughed that much in ages was really significant.” – Charity Leader and Recipient of Pay It Forward


We’ve reached our Pay It Forward target this year. Thank you for donating!
