Support us

We are a charity and rely on the generous donations of the public and our funders to keep things ticking over. There are many ways to support us, from one-off donations to monthly memberships and sponsorships. 

We generate money from a wide range of sources including commercial activities such as the Cafe Bar and revenue funding from Arts Council England and Derby City Council. However, we are still reliant on fundraising activities to support our full programme.
