Leave a gift in Your Will

By remembering Central in your Will you will ensure continuity of the world class training offered at the UK’s leading university conservatoire which in turn will shape the talent of tomorrow in the world of theatre, film and television.

Leave a gift in your will

Leaving a gift in your Will may help fund scholarships, act as investment in long-term capital projects or simply provide much-needed funds to enhance the School’s charitable objectives.   

Central aspires to provide training to the most talented individuals regardless of their financial background, and each year scholarships and bursaries are awarded to exceptional students who would otherwise be unable to take up a place at the School. Your support will enable Central to nurture the future generation of actors, theatre directors, managers and practitioners.

Legacies and bequests are exempt from inheritance tax, meaning that as a registered charity any gift bequeathed to Central will be tax deductible. You can find out more about how leaving money to charity can affect the amount of inheritance tax you pay by visiting hmrc.gov.uk.

My legacy gift to Central is designed to help sustain the understanding of this unique performing art (Puppetry). Today, students are facing such enormous debts that even a relatively small amount given - in particular to arts students – is of real value to the student.
