BACK Encore 2021 – United Kingdom Tour Charity Information

Once again Tim will be supporting Barnardo’s and Samaritans with a portion of the profits from his 2021 UK BACK Encore tour. As in 2019, each will receive 50% of the Premium ticket income for their local projects and branches around the country.

Barnardo’s is the UK’s oldest and biggest children’s charity. We believe that no child should be turned away, and that given the right opportunities and support all are able to succeed. We work with children and young people of all ages to ensure they have Stronger Families, Safer Childhoods and Positive Futures.

“Through the generosity of Tim Minchin, proceeds from this tour are going towards supporting local Barnardo’s projects in this area.”

These were the Barnardo’s projects for Tim’s 2019 UK Tour


Samaritans is extremely grateful that Tim Minchin’s tour has helped support them to deliver vital emotional support to people who are struggling to cope, in the towns and cities Tim will visit and across the UK. Anyone can contact Samaritans, for free and at any time of the day or night, on 116 123 or [email protected], and Samaritans volunteers will be there to listen, in confidence and without judgement. Whatever people are facing, Samaritans doesn’t want anyone to feel they have to cope alone. Their vital work is only possible thanks to donations.
