Once the needs of family and friends are met, a bequest in your Will is a wonderful way to continue your tradition of support and will help protect the theatre for the future.

Our promise to you is to make sure your gift will be spent in the most cost effective way, where it is needed most.

How to leave a legacy gift
It is very simple to include a legacy in your Will and we would always recommend that you use a solicitor to draft your Will and detail any gifts and legacies that you wish to bequest.

Whether you are drafting a Will for the first time or updating an existing Will, you will need to decide what type of gift you would like to leave to Theatre Royal Winchester.

  • A residuary gift is where you choose to leave a share or the whole of whatever is left in your estate after all other payments and legacies have been made
  • A cash (or pecuniary) gift is where you choose to make a gift of a fixed amount of money to Theatre Royal Winchester. The value of pecuniary legacies will decrease over time, as the cost of living increases.

Legacies to charities, such as Theatre Royal Winchester, are exempt from inheritance tax and could help reduce your liability as the value of the gift will be deducted from the estate before the tax is calculated. All of your gift would go directly to Theatre Royal Winchester.

Please remember to use our full name, correct registered address and charity number in any Will:
Theatre Royal Winchester is supported by:
The Live Theatre Winchester Trust, Jewry Street, Winchester, SO23 8SB
Charity number: 1077139
