Gift for Gold
Our Gift for Gold campaign celebrates 50 years of passion for the arts and will help us continue to support, inspire and entertain our community in Bracknell, and the surrounding areas, for many years to come.
South Hill Park Arts Centre opened in 1973 with support from the District Council, the Southern Arts Association and the Arts Council with the aim of offering a wide range of programmes from theatre to cinema, and classical music to jazz, under the slogan ‘Do it at the Park’.
Now, 50 years later, we are still ‘Doing it’ – celebrating our Golden Anniversary in 2023.
