Help us return home!
We’ve already raised £9.4 million with the help of Arts Council England, Colchester Borough Council, Essex Country Council, South East Local Enterprise Partnership and European Regional Development Fund, plus generous public and private donations. We still need your support to help us return home in 2021.
You can help by making a donation today!
Our £9.8m redevelopment is still underway and on track to be completed in 2020, however arts organisations are facing an ongoing struggle and we are no exception.
