Stage Door Arts needs your help!

The Story- Back in March 2020 (great timing!) we got the keys to our dream studio space and we created an amazing community hub at Sugar Rush in Ramsgate High Street. We signed a long lease, and did the full refurb ourselves, with the help of some fab members of our local community. We persevered through lockdown, hosting many online events and classes, despite how hard this was. We offer inclusive, acessible performing arts classes for children and teens, oppurtunities for children, teens and adults to perform shows in theatres, community baby and toddler groups and classes, social groups, a space for local crafters and artists to sell their wares, plus hold music, drag, comedy & poetry events. We also run a social singing community choir. We are LGBTQ+, neuro diverse friendly venue, plus host many local events including the film festival and festival of sound. We want to continue offering this, plus lots more.

Fast forward to 2022, our landlord sold, and despite saying the businesses would be unaffected, the new landlord is knocking it down to build 40 odd flats. Luckily, we can take a lot with us and we have found a fantastic new venue, even more central, to continue offering lots for our fantastic community.

we have taken on the old WHSmiths and will be a huge community arts hub, with studio spaces, community theatre, 3 performance spaces, community coffee shop, rehearsal space, band practice rooms and much more……

The downside is, we need at least 20k, for costs and refurb. We understand that people may not have a lot at the moment, but honestly, anything anybody can offer will be such a help.
