Why Support the Nuneaton Arts CIO?
Whilst some people may know that The Abbey Theatre is Nuneaton’s only local theatre – many don’t realise that we are managed by the Nuneaton Arts CIO, a registered UK Charity. As such the generous support of our patrons and user groups help us provide quality arts to Nuneaton and the surrounding area. Without this support, the local community would have no opportunity to watch live theatre events within the Town Centre.
As we do not manage the box office sales for all events, our main source of income is from hire fees and bar takings. Being able to meet our costs whilst trying to achieve all our ambitions is a real challenge. Currently this is only made possible through support from individuals, trusts, foundations and corporate sponsorship.
The Nuneaton Arts CIO is driven to provide the local community access to arts and entertainment, whilst providing opportunities for learning and improving awareness of the arts. We aim to inspire audiences by facilitating excellent local talent, whilst offering national touring events!
We also want to provide a deeper understanding of the arts and theatre through various workshops and tours all of which contribute to ensuring that the youth of today realise and enjoy what the arts have to offer. We encourage the public to experience and enjoy the skills of performing, and participate in behind the scenes action by becoming a volunteer at The Abbey Theatre.
