Support us

The last year has been the most challenging in our 27 years as an arts organisation. Covid-19 has decimated our income and closed our buildings. As we’re finally able to return to our activities we need your support both now and in the future, to recover from the impact that the pandemic and our closure has had on our organisation.

Winter Raffle Winners

Thank you to everyone who took part in our Winter Raffle. Your purchase of a raffle ticket will help us recover from the impact of the pandemic. We want to continue to enrich the lives of our community by engaging as many local people as possible in our creative activities – and we can’t do it without you.

We have now drawn the raffle. Congratulations to the winners:

1st prize: Ms C Mitchell
2nd prize: Anonymous
3rd prize:Mrs Jane Hawkins
4th prize: Mrs Mair Edwards

Can you help us?

In an ordinary year we need to raise £200,000 from fundraising to sustain all of our work. But this has been no ordinary year, and the continuing financial impact of Covid-19 means that we will need to redouble our fundraising efforts to ensure we can continue everything we do.

Support us by becoming a Corn Exchange Companion

We are asking you, and everyone we know, to become a Corn Exchange Companion by making a minimum suggested donation of £5 per month to support our recovery. By committing to a regular donation and joining us as a Companion you will be making a real difference to the work we are able to do, both now and in the future.

You can also make a one off donation to become a Companion here.

Thank you in advance for your support.

Information about other ways to support us can be found below.

Make a Donation

You can make a donation at any time to support our work.

If you would like to make a donation to the Corn Exchange by cheque, CAF cheque or CAF voucher, please make it payable to Corn Exchange (Newbury) Trust. Please send cheques to Development Office, Corn Exchange, Market Place, Newbury RG14 5BQ.


Shop at Amazon Smile and link the Corn Exchange as your favourite charity and Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchases to the Corn Exchange, at no cost to you.

We offer a membership scheme which provides you with priority booking for live events, film, activities in our Learning Centre and The Base, discounts at our Kitchen and Bar and other exclusive benefits.


Once you have remembered the people you care about, leaving a legacy to the Corn Exchange could make a huge difference to our work.


As we are a registered charity, for every £1 you give, we can claim an extra 25p from HMRC, at no additional cost to you. All that you need to do is complete a one-off declaration.

Gift Aid is a government scheme that allows us to reclaim the basic rate of tax you pay as a UK taxpayer. If you are a higher rate tax payer you can also claim additional tax relief.

Once completed, all you need to remember is to let us know of any changes to your tax status, including changes to your name and address.

To make your donation go further, either tick the Gift Aid box when you make a donation online (this is a one off declaration, you will not be prompted to do this when you make subsequent donations online), or complete the declaration form below and return it to the Corn Exchange, Market Place, Newbury RG14 5BD or by hand to Box Office, or call us on 01635 582666 to make a verbal declaration.
