Income from public donations plays a vitally important part in developing our amazing artistic programme, inspiring creative learning activities and in maintaining our vibrant public and social spaces.

“…it’s as a cultural hub that Kendal really punches above its weight…and the Brewery Arts Centre, in the heart of the town, has an all-but-year-round programme of films, dance theatre and comedy (the Freerange festival, in May, is a highlight), as well as exhibitions and community-minded workshops. The Grainstore restaurant is one of the best places in Kendal to eat…”

Please help us to continue our ground-breaking work by making a donation to one or more of the following:


Public and Social Spaces

The Brewery has an ongoing programme to refresh and renew its public and social spaces so they continue to meet the needs and expectations of our audiences, participants and users alike. Please help us improve the Brewery’s vibrant range of facilities.


Artistic Excellence

One of the key strengths of the Brewery is its ability to present a broad, adventurous and diverse artistic programme that is the envy of most rural towns of its size. Retaining our ability to take risks and innovate is key to our artistic success. Help us to be artistically exceptional.


Creative Learning

The Brewery’s in-house Creative Learning programme is of an unprecedented scale, for a town of Kendal’s size, giving hundreds of people from across the whole community the chance to express their creativity and learn new skills. Our portfolio includes Brewery Youth Arts, classes and workshops for adults of all ages and a growing reputation for targeted outreach projects focused on socially excluded and rurally isolated groups. Please support this vitally important work.
