WE DID IT! Thanks to you all
In 2020 the Curzon received £239,900 from the National Lottery Heritage Fund to repair it’s old and weathered roof. With estimates of over £600,000 to repair the roof-space, the roof and stonework, the Curzon embarked on a fundraising campaign in 2019. The campaign was remarkably successful and we are delighted with our new, waterproof roof!
HOW DID WE DO IT?
With an amazingly supportive public who raised £160,000 for the cinema
(and a lot of hard graft from staff, trustees and volunteers and a very effective fundraising campaign consultant).
- fundraising applications (many!)
- a ‘Tag-a-Tile’ project resulting in just under 1,000 delightful and moving messages going onto the new tiles and up on our roof
- collections after the films and all around town
- Art on the Tiles: we auctioned our old roof tiles, with beautiful artwork created by artists and celebrities

We hired a superb company to carry out the work: Corbel Ltd. who came in on time and on budget!

However, the story doesn’t end there…with our current closure, there is still a danger that the business will not survive and We are concerned for the long-term future of our business.
Help to ensure the Curzon can continue both as a heritage venue encapsulating the story of cinema-going in Britain and as the cultural beating heart of the region.
