£2,955raised of £10,000 target by 64 supporters

Weʼre raising £10,000 to save Florence Arts Centre.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Florence Arts Centre is a hub for learning, art, craft, music and entertainment in West Cumbria. Situated at the disused Florence Iron Ore Mine in Egremont Florence is unique.

In our unassuming converted miners' shower block you will find a space for exhibitions, artists' residencies, live music, cinema, theatre and performance; workshops in everything from felting to film-making, watercolours to willow weaving; a paintmaking studio using locally-sourced natural pigments, including our own iron ore; artists' studios; a community garden and more - all under one roof. Over the past two years we have worked directly with over 20 local schools, colleges and community organisations and charities. We support local artists giving them a space to work and exhibit. We support local musicians programming gigs on a regular basis and hosting monthly Open Mic, Jazz Jam and Songwriters' Showcases. We support local businesses selling products in our shop, bars and café, and we support our community giving unparallelled access to the arts in all its forms

FAC belongs to our community and our passion, enthusiasm and vision is limitless. Unfortunately our funds are not... we need your help to keep going. Please help us to save FAC.

    Update from the Page owner

    We've hot a milestone! 25% of the way there... but still some way to go. Please keep spreading the word... we are far from secure and May could be our last month. But, your donations can REALLY help. Thank you to everyone who has donated, bought a ticket or a cup of coffee so far. Florence is yours and she needs you now more than ever.

    Thanks for all the support last year! It was a pleasure to work everyone at Florence, from day one I was warmly welcomed. I hope FAC continues to grow and gains all the support it needs.
