Support The Everyman: The Beating Heart of Theatre in Cork

Do you want to champion artists? Help develop & support breath-taking performances and new writing? Invest in culture and in your community?

To make a dynamic impact on arts and culture in Cork, please consider supporting the Everyman and the work that we do.

Since 1897, The Everyman has been a vital part of Ireland’s cultural heritage and a centre of creativity for Cork.

In the past three years we have produced world premieres of new plays by Kevin Barry, Lynda Radley and Louise O’Neill, a new opera by composer John O’Brien and presented work with partners at The Abbey Theatre, Cork Midsummer Festival, Landmark Productions and Gare St Lazare.

We have welcomed audiences in excess of 100,000 every year and with you on our side we can build our audiences and invest in an institution which serves future generations.


We tell inspirational stories and host unforgettable performances in a beautiful venue.

Only 8% of our income comes from government, which means our donors, supporters, friends and members are crucial in helping us to continue to champion artists, to produce theatre of the highest quality and to be a valuable cultural asset to our community.

With your help, we want to continue taking artistic risks, developing exciting partnerships, seeking out compelling collaborations and investing in new talent.

Together, we can ensure that Cork will always have The Everyman as the thriving cultural institution that Cork deserves 

There are a range of ways in which you or your business can be a part of our story. See below for more details or contact Anna Marie Coughlan on 021 455 7822 or
