Chapter is a registered charity and relies on support from individuals, businesses and charitable trusts. This support helps us to show up to 12 exhibitions, 2,000 cinema screenings, 600 theatre performances and many more workshops, classes, talks and events every year.

Behind the scenes we also support hundreds of projects by providing space and advice. We are proud that 80% of our income is raised through ticket and café bar sales, fundraising and room hire. Here are some of the ways you can help.

  • Donations are the most effective way to help as we receive 100% of what you gift us – and there is an additional opportunity to increase the value of your donation by 25% through Gift Aid.

  • Adopt one of our lovely theatre or cinema seats as a legacy for a friend, colleague or loved one, or simply for a birthday, anniversary or in remembrance.

  • A legacy gift costs you nothing now, but could mean a great deal to the future generations who will enjoy Chapter as much as you do.

  • Our volunteers are a fantastic bunch of people who come from all walks of life but share one thing in common – they’re passionate about Chapter and what we do.

  • We've made changes to our Chapter memberships. Visit this page for the latest information. 

  • With particular thanks to those who have helped us through Covid, and all those individuals who gave so generously through the Save Chapter campaign.
