Help make bOing! special

Support Us

It is so exciting that bOing! is growing every year, but it means that we need your help to make it happen.

You can help bOing! by telling your friends all about it, by giving time as a volunteer, or by donating to help us create more brilliant experiences for people of all ages.


We need your support to make bOing! bigger and better in future. We are committed to bringing bOing! to more children and young people across Kent, in particular working with schools and community groups to reach those who do not usually have the opportunity to experience performance. This year if you donate £10 or more we will give you a special, limited edition poster by artist Elliot Masters.

Every penny can help us to do this, so please donate online here if you would like to support bOing!

Be a bOing! volunteer.
