    IROKO THEATRE COMPANY 

    IROKO utilises the arts, in particular but not exclusively African arts - storytelling, drama, music, dance, arts and crafts to engage, educate and improve the quality of life of disadvantaged people from different backgrounds, age groups and abilities through workshops, performances, exhibitions, training, research and provision of resources.
    Analysis by Giving is Great

    Positives:

    • Spending has increased over the last 3 years relative to the previous period, despite a decline more recently
    • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers and there are significant future grants due to be received

    Financial issues to consider:

    • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
    • On several occasions in recent years income has been less than spending
