The Lightbox is a registered charity, and we rely on your support to continue making art accessible to our community. 

From affordable exhibitions featuring world-class artists, to a welcoming learning programme for children and adults, to archiving and sharing Woking's history, The Lightbox is dedicated to being more than just a gallery.
