Support the Arts in Cumbria

Published on 3rd August 2023

Help us continue to provide life-changing cultural experiences in Kendal and beyond.

For 50 years, Brewery Arts has been a vital resource to the community, presenting international artists and events, nurturing local talent and boosting skills, health and well-being.

As a not-for-profit charity, we need to raise over 85% of our income through fundraising, ticket sales and commercial activities. With this support, we have been able to reach more than 1 million people over the past 10 years, in our venue, in schools across the county, and in the community.

In the UK, the arts and culture sector was one of the hardest hit by the pandemic. The continued impact of this, combined with high inflation and rising costs means that we need your help more than ever.

Please consider supporting Brewery Arts, if you can. Your contribution will enable us to maintain current projects and create new ones, it will support the recovery of the creative industries, and help build a pipeline of creative talent in the local area.
