Norden’s Ark Appeal


Who will benefit?

You, and many thousands of our local community. These funds will help us continue creating and delivering – in both live and digital formats – our multi-arts entertainment and creative activities that our local audiences have come to love and expect from us. Whether you are a family in self-isolation, or a visitor who is shielding, we want to make sure we have a programme available.


Why do we need this funding now?

It costs £750,000+ each year to keep Norden Farm open as a vital resource for our local community. Our much-needed Culture Recovery Fund award, received on 12 October, will help cover our ongoing operational costs and offset substantial losses incurred during closure and as a result of restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We need additional funds to meet the increased demand from our audiences for both live and online programming; the Norden’s Ark Appeal will make this possible.


How can you get involved in the Appeal?

There are many ways for you, your friends, family and work colleagues to support the Norden’s Ark Appeal.

Make a Norden’s Ark Ticket Donation – from now until we can return to full capacity, every booker will be given the option to add a donation of £10 to their basket (the average value of an empty socially-distanced seat)

Virtual Quiz - Wed 18 Nov 7pm-8pm – make up a team with family, friends and work colleagues from the UK and around the world for this fun, family-friendly quiz on Zoom. Plus, look out for guest appearances by Jon Culshaw, Russell Brand and other familiar faces. Tickets: £5 per person, £30 per team of 6. Click here to book.

Norden’s Ark Match Fund Fortnight – thanks to your amazing support it looks like we will exceed our match target of £11K a whole 12 days ahead of deadline. We would love the Fortnight to contribute £25K to our Norden’s Ark Appeal total of £50K, so please do keep giving here or make a donation below. Thank you!
