Become a Friend

Friendship benefits us all

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 welcome each year became Friends they would be ensuring we can deliver our creative programme 'Pay What You Can' for the whole year.

For all arts organisations, gaining funding to deliver project work like the stunning Build a Rainbow community exhibition and life impacting Young Digital Makers remains difficult, but our experience and reputation for delivering high quality arts experiences means we are able to continue being successful in funding this work.

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