Supporting The Courtyard Through Donations
The Courtyard is Herefordshire’s Centre for the Arts, offering amazing cultural experiences to as wide an audience as possible. Our annual footfall is well over 300,000 and rising, making us one of the busiest public amenities in Herefordshire. We are the main community arts hub for Herefordshire, delivering a huge range of educational and inspirational projects, for example, each week, over 350 young people attend one of our Youth Theatre groups, both at The Courtyard or one of our satellite groups at Kington and Bromyard and we’ve worked with over 60% of Herefordshire care homes in the last few years. Our work has a significant and very positive impact on the lives of people living in our rural county, not just at the venue itself.
Sponsoring a seat can be a really personal way of giving your name, or the name of someone you love, to The Courtyard, while supporting the venue. We offer seat sponsorship in two different spaces – the Main House (£300 per seat or two for £500) and the Studio (£175 each).
Help The Courtyard to plan for the future with confidence by leaving us a gift in your Will. Legacies are also a great way to give if you prefer to donate in the future rather than committing yourself now. Contact Melanie Denning, fundraising manager, on 01432 346503 for more information.
