We are your Pavilion and we still need your support.

Thank you to our loyal community of donors, Members and Patrons who have supported the Pavilion through three months of closure due to the Covid-19 crisis.
We are grateful for your overwhelming generosity, and for the critical emergency support from our key funders, Rother District Council and Arts Council England.

But we still need your help. Being closed for so long means a significant loss of income and challenging times ahead.

Your gift will help DLWP and our communities continue to work together long into the future.

We are your Pavilion – please donate today.

Thank you.
