FUNDING & DONATIONS
How we are financed
We are one of the smallest arts charities in the country, have no paid staff and are a not- for-profit organisation. The theatre and music productions we bring to the Community usually just break even or result in a very small profit. Any surpluse is invested in future activities.
Our two largest projects (In the Field and When the Oak Spoke) were possible only after extensive fund-raising activities. We are extremely grateful to the funders and individual donors who have contributed more than £70,000 to our activities. Other bodies have made contributions in kind that are much appreciated.
National Funders; Arts Council England and Big Lottery Fund
