The Theatre Royal Haymarket and Waldorf Hilton partner to empower young people

The Theatre Royal Haymarket and Waldorf Hilton partner to empower young people

Haymarket & Hilton empower future

First Published 15 May 2017, Last Updated 15 May 2017

The Waldorf Hilton has announced a partnership with the charity Theatre Royal Haymarket – Masterclass Trust, giving young people an opportunity to develop business and life skills.

Devoted to using theatre as a platform to build confidence, strengthen self-esteem and nurture creativity, the charity was set up by the Theatre Royal Haymarket in 1998. Since then, they have worked tirelessly to inspire young people by working closely with leading figures from the arts.

The Waldorf Hilton has strong connections to Theatreland as a result of its close proximity to many of London’s leading theatres. Alongside the Hilton in the Community Foundation, the hotel raised more than £17,000 for Masterclass in 2015 through its fundraising efforts, and last year hosted TheatreCraft, the free behind-the-scenes careers fair for anyone aged 16-25.

Following the partnership announcement, those fundraising initiatives will continue as the hotel and its employees come together with the charity to help make a difference to the lives of young people in the capital.

Guy Hilton, General Manager, The Waldorf Hilton said: “It’s vitally important for us to give something back to the community and we’re very much looking forward to embarking on this new partnership.

“Masterclass are a small charity, but they have had a big impact on the lives of so many young people – whether that’s through workshops, apprenticeships or creative opportunities. The arts is a great way to engage and inspire, and we’re delighted to be part of such a fantastic initiative.”

Blayne George, Programme Director, Theatre Royal Haymarket Masterclass Trust added: “We are absolutely delighted to be chosen as the Waldorf Hilton’s charity partner for 2017. Theatre is one of the oldest forms of creativity and is one of the most important ways we can communicate and collectively share experiences.

“It is only through the very generous support of The Waldorf Hilton that Masterclass is able to continue giving young people free access to the professional world of theatre; encouraging and empowering them to have faith in their voice.”

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
