Following the publication of The Witham's Autumn 2017 programme, it has come to our attention that there is an error in the Rotary Club of Barnard Castle's email address in their advert, due to an error.

Whole-hearted apologies to the Rotary Club of Barnard Castle for this mistake. We appreciate the support of all our advertisers and this does not reflect our usual high standards of service. The Rotary Club of Barnard Castle has been a loyal and generous supporter of The Witham over the years.

Please note that the correct email address for correspondence with the Rotary Club of Barnard Castle is as follows:

kandmmiles@btinternet.com

Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

Support your arts centre and give the gift of the arts as well!

The Witham have gift vouchers available to purchase from our Box Office which can be redeemed for tickets to music gigs, performances, films, children's theatre, dance events, gifts and food.

Please pop into the Box Office where a volunteer and member of staff will be able to help and show off all the possibilities that The Witham gift vouchers have to offer!

Vouchers can be bought in any sum you require, and you can also buy a special Witham gift card to go with it.

Support Barnard Castle's vibrant arts centre and give an amazing gift at the same time! 

 

 

Here at The Witham arts centre, our passion, imagination and determination are boundless – unlike our resources!

The Witham is a registered charity run by a small staff team and supported by volunteers. We, unlike many arts organisations, don’t employ a fundraising specialist; we regularly apply for, and secure grants, but we are not a regularly funded organisation. This means that we rely on donations, volunteers, ticket sales, gallery sales, custom in the Dispensary cafe and the support of our Friends to ensure our survival.

The Witham continues to go from strength-to-strength thanks to the fantastic support and enthusiasm displayed by the local community. However, we need to ensure our future is secure and you can help us do just that.

There are three key ways that you can get involved - by donating, becoming a volunteering and joining our Friends of The Witham Scheme.

Donating to support the arts in our community 

The Witham is a registered charity dedicated to enabling cultural, community and commercial events and activities to take place in Barnard Castle for the benefit of residents and visitors.

The Witham is a registered arts charity and we require support to meet our running costs and to enable us to stage exciting events and support local community groups and commercial activities.

You can support us by clicking on the JustGiving link below, emailing caroline.maughan@thewitham.org.uk to arrange a direct debit, or making a cheque out to Witham Hall Ltd. and posting it to DONATION, c/o Caroline Maughan, 3 Horse Market, Barnard Castle, County Durham, DL12 8LY
