Help us "Raise the Roof" on a new Marquee

Help us to raise the roof on a new Marquee! Having secured valuable support funding from Heritage Lottery Fund and Architectural Heritage Fund the Arkwright Society is needing to fundraise to replace our old & creaky marquee. It has provided valiant service, but when it rains, even the bunting and fairy lights will not keep us dry!

With the new Visitor Centre & Cromford Creative offices now open, we are able to look at the next step in the Cromford Mills Master Plan. We want to hold bigger and better events in the Mill Yard, on a year round basis. Our family events and Mill Markets were successful last summer, but with a new Marquee we would have the chance to host weddings, theatre productions and larger conferences all year round! This would bring more people to Cromford Mills to support the continued regeneration of this wonderful World Heritage Site.

The Arkwright Society needs to raise £20,000 to buy a new Marquee and all the equipment to kit it out properly, as its main contribution towards the grant given by Heritage Lottery Fund and the Architectural Heritage Fund.
Any contribution would be gratefully received, and adding gift aid will give another 20% to your donation.
