About Us


Be part of something extraordinary

The Civic is a registered charity and without the help and support of donations and sponsors we would not be able to keep doing what we do.

Donations help us deliver our artistic programme, offer workshops & participatory experiences for a range of people and run our theatre company Cross the Sky.

We are currently working hard to realise our ambition of becoming a destination for the arts and open up the whole of the building for people to enjoy.

We have exciting plans in place that will:

  • Re-instate our original Victorian Entrance on Eldon Street and make the historic features of the building accessible to our audiences
  • Create a new welcoming main entrance complete with new bar, box office and space to relax
  • Create a new Studio Theatre, Events Space and extended Gallery so we can offer more exciting arts events, exhibitions and shows.
  • Create dedicated rehearsal and workshop spaces for more classes and participatory arts activities

There will be opportunities for our audiences and supporters to find out more about the project, share ideas and get involved with its development… Keep an eye on our regular blog and Facebook page for updates.

In the meantime please support us to keep this amazing project moving forward by making a donation to our appeal.

You can donate as little as a £1 and every single donation takes us one brick closer to securing the long term future of the Civic.
