It’s our mission to bring joy through the performances we put on our stage and the activities we provide our community. But did you know that even if we sold out every single show, we would not make enough to cover the cost of running the venue? This is because 80% of our ticket sales go straight to the artists you love. That’s why we are a charity: to really thrive we need supporters like yourselves to help us deliver our mission.
Every year we need to raise £230,000 alongside the income we earn from ticket and food and drink sales to ensure we can deliver our programme. As a charity, fundraising is an essential part of our business model, and that means every donation directly contributes to our impactful activities and in retaining the incredible community resource the venue provides for over 100,000 people in the area.
We’ve got a brilliant range of events and activities – from life-enhancing creative sessions for those struggling with illness or isolation to professional development for the next generation of talent – you can donate to, fundraise for, or sponsor.
