Charity description

The Kirkgate Centre logo
Welcome to Kirkgate Arts' mydonate page.

Kirkgate Arts is a charity based in the small town of Cockermouth on the edge of the English Lake District.  We support creativity and the community, bringing the very best live events to Cumbria.

We run Cockermouth's Kirkgate Centre - a vibrant theatre, arts and heritage venue - and Arts Out West, the programme of shows we take to village halls throughout our region.

In an area of low engagement with the arts we offer access to high quality professional live music, dance and theatre shows from all over the world, as well as a range of films, live streaming, workshops, community arts, talks and events.

The Kirkgate Centre is also a community hub, providing space and support to many local organisations and groups.

Our greatest asset is a a team of 120 volunteers who give their time to run the venue for their own community.

If you are one of those people who really value communities coming together - here is a fantastic opportunity to support the charity's efforts!

The donation you make to Kirkgate Arts will also help us with the long term ambition for the Kirkgate Centre: a modernised, extended home for our activities, accessible to everyone and with a secure and exciting future!

Thank you for your interest and your generous donation.  We really appreciate your support.
