The Courtyard Needs Your Support
The Courtyard is Herefordshire’s Centre for the Arts and has been a registered charity since it opened over 20 years ago. We offer quality cultural experiences, entertainment and activities for everyone.
Over the years we have delivered a huge range of inspirational and educational community projects. Our Creative Ageing work has had a tremendous impact on Herefordshire’s residents living with dementia. We’ve seen young people struggling in mainstream education blossom through our Youth Theatre. In 2019 we launched a mental health awareness project for young Herefordshire residents. Our work is always growing and reaching new people.
Providing access to quality arts for a wide range of people is at the heart of what we do at The Courtyard. To do this, we rely a lot on our generous, local supporters. This helps us sustain and develop our community work with people from all walks of life. The venue is a wonderful asset for the city and wider county. Donations support and protect the work we do as well as the building itself.
If you can gift aid any donation, this means that we can raise an 25% more in income, at no extra cost to yourself. You can download our gift aid form from this page.
Please give what you can and support our work in the communities of Herefordshire.

Make Your Donations Go 25% Further
As a registered charity, The Courtyard can claim 25% Gift Aid on donations from eligible donors. This is a vital income stream for The Courtyard, raising more than £18,000 in the 2019-20 tax year alone.
If you are a UK tax payer, we can claim an extra 25p from HMRC for every £1 you donate. The only condition is that the value of the gift aided amounts in any one tax year doesn’t exceed the tax you pay.
If you are eligible for Gift Aid but haven’t filled in a declaration form yet, we’d love to hear from you. You can make your support go so much further! Please think about completing and returning a Gift Aid declaration form. Forms are downloadable here or available from the Box Office when open.
Please tick all boxes that apply i.e. ‘in the past four years’, ‘now’ and ‘in the future’. This will help us in claiming all eligible donations. Don’t forget that if you pay income tax at the higher rate (40%), you can claim further tax relief on your own tax returns.
Please contact Box Office for further information about Gift Aid on 01432 340555 (phone lines closed during Covid lockdown) or email@example.com.
The Sir Derek Jacobi Circle
Sir Derek Jacobi is an Honorary Patron of The Courtyard along with husband Richard Clifford. They are both passionate about regional theatre and understand the need for financial support to give better access to the arts in Herefordshire. We set up the Derek Jacobi Circle to recognise the incredible support of our donors. The Circle is there to publicly thank anyone making a single donation of £1,000 or more to The Courtyard in the last or current financial year. Some donors choose to remain anonymous but we are truly grateful for all gifts, large and small!
Please contact Box Office for further information about donating to The Courtyard on 01432 340555 (phone lines closed during Covid-19 lockdown) or via email firstname.lastname@example.org (in strictest confidence).
