Our Patrons

Theatre Peckham are honoured to be supported by some extraordinary Patrons.

These wonderful and accomplished people are quiet supporters of our work of making the professional dreams of young people actually happen.

If you would like to become a Patron, please contact theatre@theatrepeckham.co.uk 

John Boyega

“I had energy but I didn’t know how to define it, I loved to be in school plays but I never knew there were other kids like me from South London who loved the same thing. At Theatre Peckham I met people like me, from my area, who were not afraid to say “I love art, and I love expressing myself”. John Boyega

John is a Theatre Peckham alumni and an active TP Patron. In January this year, he unveiled our mural dedicated to him, created by street artist The Artful Dodger, which pays tribute to our past, and inspires the next generation as they come through our doors.

Jenny Agutter OBE

Jenny lives locally and had heard of Theatre Peckham and thought it would be good to introduce herself and come and see some of our work.  For the past few years Jenny has been a strong advocate of our work, and is keen to ensure the future of TP for her local community.
