We love our Victorian home at The Kirkgate Centre and hope that you do too.  However, time and heavy use take their toll. We work hard on essential maintenance and have costly major improvements in our sights. Please help us by donating here Ticketsolve – The Kirkgate No amount is too small.  Thank you so much for all your help and support.

Kirkgate Arts Allerdale Lottery Sidebar (1)Another way to donate is by making Allerdale and Lakeland Lottery your Good Cause. Tickets for the lottery cost just £1 per week. Each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance to win a prize each week, with a top prize of £25,000.

From every £1 ticket you buy, 60p goes to local good causes in Allerdale and improving the community. 50p of that 60p comes to Kirkgate Arts and Heritage if you make us your Good Cause. Click here to support us. 


How do I ‘Name A Seat’?

It costs £150 to name one of our seats, support the centre and become a part of Kirkgate’s development and story. We have a number of seats still available. If you would like to reserve the naming rights on a new seat, please email us here.
