Stage 4 Development Funding Appeal

Dear Members and Supporters,

Shaftesbury Arts Centre is literally bursting at the seams. Each week is packed full of activities and entertainment. As well as a chance to take part in our 4 own shows a year we offer you more than a dozen different groups, some, in-house groups, free to members, other run by professionals who make their own charges.

All these need space, so the directors have decided that the time has come for us to begin to realise stage 4 of our development plan; to build our long awaited extension and fly tower.

This will give us much needed storage, workshop, rehearsal and meeting space and will incorporate our roof repairs.

We have the opportunity to apply for a large grant from the Arts Council to cover the cost of the build, but will need to raise £250,000 in match funding.

We have made a good start but would be grateful for donations, however small, and would also be pleased to hear of any funding bodies with whom you may have contact.

We will keep you posted of our progress on the board above the ice-cream freezer in the Foyer.

Lastly, thanks to all of you who support the Arts Centre and to all the volunteers who work so hard to make it the exciting place it is.

Jenny Parker, Chairman.


In support of this appeal, the Arts Centre holds a range of fundraising events which are indicated by this logo on the event page and by a "Raise a Roof" indication on the programme ticket.

Should the project not require all the monies collected, the Arts Centre board retain the right to use them for other of the Arts Centre's charitable purposes.
