The Craic Theatre Coalisland Co Tyrone Crowdfunder


The Craic Theatre has been part of Coalisland’s rich cultural history for over 25 years. They are a creative home for the people of Coalisland and the wider Mid Ulster area, and are passionate about supporting our community, improving health and well-being and providing positive, uplifting experiences through the arts. They have given opportunities to many young people through their Youth Theatre programme with hundreds of young people attending classes and participating in shows every year.


Because of the current Covid-19 pandemic and with no date of when social distancing restrictions will be lifted, they have had to take the difficult decision to postpone previously announced productions and put on hold plans for their 2020/21 programme of events, which means they have lost between 60% and 70% of their income from box office and bar sales.


Since March, their board of management has taken significant measures to alleviate the situation and avail of all support to ensure that The Craic Theatre will come through this period stronger and better than ever. But they need some help from you.

They believe their community will need them in the recovery from Covid-19 more than ever before, and they really want to be there for you. The Craic Theatre WILL be back but they need your help!


If you have ever enjoyed a show at Craic or you have ever performed at Craic or your children have ever participated in shows at Craic or you recognise the contribution that Craic has made to the area please consider donating the price of a ticket to a show to our Crowdfunding campaign.


Please keep supporting the Craic through these difficult times, so we can all look forward to being together again soon.
