Pump House exterior night lights

The Pump House is funded through its users, bar revenues, donations and sponsorship. We currently receive minimal direct funding or grants so rely on the generosity of our supporters and volunteers to keep our doors open.

Raise the Roof Campaign

Raise the Roof logoOur theatre roof is past its sell by date and anyone who’s performed here will know our backstage is functional but could be better. We’ve unveiled exciting plans to literally raise the theatre roof and enhance our facilities. Improvements will include:

  • a watertight, insulated roof and space (saving energy)
  • more seats in a new balcony area
  • better stage facilities
  • bigger dressing rooms
  • new, natural light rehearsal studio space
  • additional disabled access and facilities
  • additional facilities for the Colne River Room space.


The artist’s impression below gives you some idea of how the new extension would look. But to achieve this phased development we need to raise £750,000. We’ll be applying for grants and corporate support but we’ll also need the help of our community so watch this space for ways you’ll be able to us raise the funds. In the meantime, you can donate now by clicking the button below.
