DLWP Patrons have the opportunity to forge a special relationship with this iconic building and our programme.

Thank you to our loyal Patrons who have supported the Pavilion through closure due to the Covid-19 crisis. We are grateful for your overwhelming generosity, and for the critical emergency support from our key funders.

But we still need your support.  A second closure means a significant loss of income and challenging times ahead.

Joining us as a Patron, or extending your existing support, is an invaluable way of supporting the Pavilion and our communities to thrive long into the future.

Remember to tick ‘auto-renew’ to automatically renew your Patronage each year!

We also offer a bespoke £1,000 VIP Patrons package. Please contact Pippa Moore ( if you would like to discuss this option further.

Our President is Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall
