The Lightbox is an award-winning charitable arts and heritage organisation with a social purpose to improve the wellbeing and quality of life of its community.

We strongly believe that art has the power to make you feel good and we strive to ensure that this philosophy is at the heart of everything we do. Our diverse cultural programme includes exhibitions featuring world-renowned artists, local heritage, talks and tours, social events and arts and crafts workshops for all ages.

We also host special fundraising events. These raise money for our charitable ventures such as our Art and Wellbeing initiative which provides opportunities for those that would otherwise not be able to access arts and heritage services to take part in creative workshops, including free drop-in sessions for families. The programme also includes community workshops for those living with dementia and their carers, those affected by mental health issues, those in local care homes and hospices, and clients of the nearby homeless shelter.

These programmes would not be possible without the support of our visitors. Whether you choose to become a Friend, attend a fundraising event, visit an exhibition, or simply buy something from our Shop, all profits feed back into the charity which means these valuable services are able to continue. Thank you for your support.

The Lightbox is a registered charity no: 1073543.
