I Heart CY 20


It’s wonderful to be celebrating 20 years of delivering great arts experiences and participation with our communities but this milestone reminds us of the challenges ahead. This iconic venue, its equipment and infrastructure is not getting any younger.

To help us future proof the venue and our work, we are launching a 20th Anniversary Appeal to raise £70,000 by August 2019. We’re currently at £37,000 towards our overall target. Help us reach our target by donating below.

Here’s just some of our wish list:

£49,000 6 specialist professional moving lights for the Main House to replace unreliable, ageing and un-eco friendly stock.

£6,000 20 new specialist arts toolkits so we can run high quality crafts sessions with older people.

£4,100 20 bursaries to enable disadvantaged young people to attend Youth Theatre for a year.

£3,800 2 digital projectors, 8 lightweight tables for Arts & Crafts Room and a conference-call enabled phone, to improve facilities for hirers.

£2,150 20 portable microphones plus one multi-mic headset to use for shows in & around the building.

£1,000 2 new digital Wifi-enabled cameras – to be used by young people, staff and volunteers to share creative activities and events digitally.

Sponsor a Seat:

For our 20th birthday year (up to August 2019), we are offering a special rate of £200 (normally £300) for seat sponsorship in the Main House while Studio seat sponsorship is £175, both lasting five years. Visit our Sponsor a Seat page for more details.
