We're still collecting donations

On the 10th June 2020 we'd raised £500 with 21 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

New stretch target

For sixteen years, since May 2006, The Space has been holding regular arts, entertainment and media-related events in Brighton, mainly at intimate venues. At the time of writing, we’re approaching our 100th event, in March 2022. The guest interviewees are always interesting and insightful, often inspiring. 

The events, run and hosted by Wayne Imms, are very time-consuming, with certainly a lot of work going into them, as well as lots of worry and anxiety. He is highly knowledgeable about the arts and entertainment and a very experienced interviewer, with particular interests being film and music. The Space has given a lot of pleasure to many people. 

The pandemic has definitely, like with many small businesses, badly affected The Space. Although it has been great to return after eighteen months, the bookings certainly appear to be less than they would otherwise be. Understandably, a large number of potential attendees have been less willing to come to events of any kind, due to a concern over the virus, including its variants. Of course, this has had an impact on the income of The Space. Some events can be particularly costly and there are always other regular costs, too. 

Donations would at least help to cover ongoing costs towards the events and others associated, as it were, with The Space. Any would be much appreciated. Former guests include these, below –
