Why Support Us?

We need your support! Portsmouth Guildhall is managed by a registered charity, Portsmouth Cultural Trust. We receive grant funding from Portsmouth City Council which is less than a ¼ of what we need to operate, and this is reducing each year.

We are proud to attract some of the world’s finest artists, bands and comedians to Portsmouth and wish to continue to do so and provide a platform for new and emerging talent. We aim to provide a rich and diverse cultural offer and make the arts accessible to all.

Through our Participate programme we engage with over 5,000 people a year in our community who would otherwise not have the opportunity to attend live events and we also support young people on their path to a career in the Creative Industry. With your support we could do more and engage with even more people.

Our iconic and much loved Grade II listed building has seen little investment since it’s reopening by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 1959 and we are now embarking on an ambitious programme of Guildhall Renaissance to preserve our heritage and provide the facilities and services required in the modern day and ensure that we continue to thrive for the next 130 years.

Be a part of the next phase of our history and support us through our Studio Campaign by becoming a Corporate Partner or Member, Advertising with us, playing the Lottery or making a Donation.

Thank you!
