Help us keep the heart of Newbury beating.
Today we are launching Love Your Corn Exchange and we're asking you to make a suggested donation of £10 to support us. Can you help?
Over the last 4 years our funding from West Berkshire Council has reduced by 52%, directly impacting events at the Corn Exchange. By the end of May we need to raise £12,500, which will be match funded by the Arts Council England, to maintain our programme of activities.
As we look to secure our future, with the Council passing the ownership of the Corn Exchange to us, we remain hugely appreciative of your ongoing support.
Our audiences and the local community are at the heart of everything we do and we would love to be able to continue making a positive difference to people's lives through the arts.
Every penny you donate will help us to fund:
- Youth Theatre
- Ageing Creatively programmes in care homes
- Dementia Cafes
- the Corn Exchange as a historic Newbury landmark
Annually we raise over £30,000 from your donations and we're really proud to be amongst a community that is committed to supporting our continued growth and development, enabling us to bring the best of the arts to Newbury.
If you donate today, your money can go further than ever before. Until September 2019 the Arts Council England will be matching all new donations - doubling the impact of your gift. So a donation of £10 means £20 for the Corn Exchange!
Your donations are a lifeline to keep the Corn Exchange alive.
