Become a Friend

Friendship benefits us all

We have relaunched our Friends scheme and have set ourselves a target to reach 500 new Friends by the end of March and we are really hoping you will be one of them! For the same price as a cup of coffee a month will you become our Friend?

With your support we can ensure the sustainability of The Horsebridge and secure its future as a flagship arts centre for the communities we serve. 

If just 1% of the visitors we anticipate for 2020 became Friends they would be helping us to generate nearly 10% of our income for the year.

For all arts organisations, gaining funding to deliver projects like the stunningThink Of Me and thought provoking Waste Line exhibitions or the large community event 'They came from the deep' is getting more difficult but we think that because we have a reputation for delivering high quality arts experiences, The Horsebridge will continue to do well in the future.

However, money to just keep the Horsebridge open, warm, cleaned and maintained so we can deliver activities and support our visitors is not so easy to raise!  This is where we need people like you, our friends who value having us here.
