For 45 years, The Plough Arts Centre has sought to bring the very best in live music, comedy, film, theatre and the visual arts to Torrington and across North Devon - this is what we're passionate about. We hope you value what we do. It’s what makes The Plough the “jewel of North Devon“.
In fact, this year we have seen the highest audience figures in its 45 year history, and we have many exciting plans for the future.
But right now the Plough needs short term financial help to survive the next few months.
As The Plough’s Director Richard Wolfenden Brown puts it: “Despite a thriving arts and community programme, excellent customer feedback, and audiences for films and live events that have grown by 55% over the last five years, The Plough has experienced a recent dramatic rise in overheads coupled with a reduction in core funding which has created the perfect storm in our delicate finances,”
We are tightening our belts and seeking ways to save money, including reducing staff hours in order to try to stabilise finances. But to survive the short term we need your help.
This appeal is to raise urgent funds to ensure The Plough survives.
