The Englefield Charitable Trust is proud to support the Corn Exchange in Newbury, which hosts theatre and art shows for the community; presenting and producing international artists in theatre, dance, music, film, comedy and visual arts to audiences across the South East.
Council funding for the Corn Exchange was withdrawn in April 2019, and the theatre now relies on the support of local Trusts and Foundations.
Catherine Haig of the Englefield Charitable Trust said: “We are very happy to support the valuable work of the Corn Exchange with young, talented people in this area. It is a superb facility which puts the community at the core of everything it does”.
Laura Jostins-Dean, Head of Business Development at the Corn Exchange said: “With the support of the Englefield Charitable Trust we are able to sustain and grow our vital work with young people in the community. The funding will go towards our Youth Theatre programme, our workshops and classes for families and our work with schools. This will have a great impact on enabling us to continue to make a difference we can make to people’s lives through engagement with the arts.”
