What is STAR 1000?

South Hill Park have launched a new fundraising campaign where we are asking for 1000 ‘stars’ to give a minimum of £5 a month, which will raise at least £60,000 a year. This will help to ensure the Arts Centre’s future so they can continue to provide entertainment, support and inspiration to its community in Bracknell and surrounding areas for many years to come.

Along with many other UK theatres and arts centres, South Hill Park has been forced to close through much of 2020/21 following the Government’s measures to combat the Covid-19 outbreak. South Hill Park has launched STAR 1000 to encourage the public supporters to join us in protecting the Arts Centre now and for the future.

It’s vital that we do everything we can to protect the arts in our community and to protect South Hill Park… South Hill Park inspires us, it connects us, and it enriches our lives.

Why is this campaign needed?

South Hill Park would like to share a huge thank you to everyone who has already generously donated to our fundraising campaign.

The campaign was launched in June 2020 due to the impact of Covid-19 and has already raised over £300,000 with the help of the local community and a successful grant application from the Culture Recovery Fund.

Who else is supporting the campaign?

The STAR 1000 campaign is also receiving support from the stars behind our much-loved pantomimes, including Joyce Branagh, the writer of the 2018 production Dick Whittington, for which she received a Great British Pantomime Award, Aladdin (2019) and the postponed production of Cinderella, coming to the Arts Centre in 2021. Keep an eye on the South Hill Park Facebook page to see these familiar festive faces share why the cause is so important to them.
