Sponsor a Seat for £150
When the seats were first installed in the theatre we called for sponsors and many people responded. Their prize, apart from the satisfaction of helping us grow, was a brass nameplate on a seat of their choice.
There are still some seats awaiting their sponsors. Could you be one of them?
Buy from our shop
We now have an Arts Centre shop. Just click the Shop advertisement in the right hand column and you enter our Amazon Astore. It admits you to the full range available on Amazon. The thing is, if you buy something from Amazon by going through our shop we get about 5% of the price you pay, at no extra cost to yourself. So please help us by buying from Amazon through our site. Could be very useful for this Christmas.
Sponsor an event for £50 or more
If you would like to be an event sponsor then let us know before we publish the next brochure and we'll let you know what we've planned. Then you can choose your event. We can then acknowledge you as a sponsor in our description of the event. And, of course, on our website.
Sponsor an activity
This is particularly important to us, because some activities we
support cost us more than they earn. And others we are seeking to
establish and get under way.You may want to be associated
with a particular activity.
At the top of our list of priorities is our support for young people.

Any size of donation will be welcome, of course. It could go towards any of the above but it could go as easily towards the £20,000 we'll need for converting our cinema from 35mm film projection to full-scale digital projection.
Remember us in your will
We have been lucky enough to have received in the past one or two generous legacies, notably the sum left to us by Dorothy Morley that enabled us to attract matching funding from the Arts Council for building the west extension. So....
If you'd like to help us financially, please contact Karen Gosney, our General Manager.
And remember, every little bit counts.
Quite apart from our need for financial help we need the regular day-to-day help of volunteers. Running an Arts Centre like ours costs a lot of money, especially when providing, as we do, such a wide range of events and activities. And some of the most valuable things we do cost us more than they earn. For example, most of our work with young people. But it would cost a lot more without our volunteers.
A lot of people (even some who regularly come to our shows) don't realise we are a registered charity. We employ three people part-time, and a number of others on an occasional basis (eg. our cinema projectionists) or by contracting work out to others. But a great deal of the work is done by about 80 volunteers, some of them working two or three days a week.So please contact us if you'd like to be one of the volunteer team. Again, every little bit you can do helps.
