Support us

As a registered charity (1080567) we rely in part on donations from our wonderful audiences and supporters.

It costs approximately £7,000 per day to run the Corn Exchange and deliver our programme of work. Every year we need to fundraise at least £200,000 to allow us to continue doing all of the brilliant work we do and maintain our beautiful building.

As we continue on our recovery from the pandemic, we are looking ahead towards a bright and busy future of ever growing activity across our organisation. We always want to do more for our community and we need ongoing support to help us achieve our mission. Therefore we would like to ask you to consider making a donation to our Future Fund which will support all of the brilliant work we do.

Can you help us?

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.

The Corn Exchange (Newbury) Trust is a registered charity 1080567.
