Why we need your support

Babylon ARTS is Ely's leading micro arts centre. We run Babylon Gallery, Ely Cinema and deliver arts events and projects, such as Market Place, that engage audiences in memorable and personal ways as well as providing quality entertainment.  Each year Babylon ARTS welcomes over 40,000 people who visit or take part in our cultural events and activities. We are one of the highest attended venues in the city, second only to Ely Cathedral.

We believe that the work we do for the local community in Ely and beyond makes the area a better place to live and contributes to our audiences’ enjoyment of their environment. We think that the arts offer us opportunities to understand ourselves better and our place in society; enhances our sense of well-being, confidence and self-esteem and can even enable us to make new friends.

Babylon ARTS currently does not receive any core public funding. We are reliant on ticket sales from our Ely cinema programme and donations to sustain our work. In order to continue to offer quality experiences for our community via projects and gallery exhibitions we need to fundraise more widely - all our events have a cost.

Any gift, no matter how small is gratefully received and will go directly to delivering cultural activities and events at Babylon ARTS.  All donations are also eligible for gift aid which will increase the overall amount we can receive.

 

If you would like to talk to one of our team about becoming a member, donor, patron or sponsor of Babylon ARTS please get in touch on office@babylonarts.org.uk or 01353 616991.  We'd love to hear from you!
