SUPPORTING ARTS VENUES

We make regular contributions to Elmbridge’s key community arts venues, and also support other theatres, studios and galleries by awarding specific capital grants for improvements.

These arts venues are vital creative hubs that provide opportunities for members of the community – all ages, abilities and social backgrounds – to experience and participate in a wide range of creative activities and events.

We support arts venues in Elmbridge to ensure they can continue to deliver the best possible experience for all their users, enabling them to attract top artists and performers to our borough, which in turn inspires and encourages new talent to develop.
