Help us kick start the next Chapter at the Old Library
intoBodmin CIC is a non-profit cultural organisation, established to promote Bodmin as an attractive, engaging, inspirational and progressive town. We’ve already got Bodmin noticed as an up-and-coming centre for exciting cultural activity and have secured significant support from Arts Council England and Cornwall Council.
We’re looking for forward-thinking people to support us in our next phase of development and become Bodmin's cultural champions as Founder-Supporters of The Old Library. Founder Supporters will enable our fledgling organisation to reclaim Bodmin's historic Old Library as an exciting creative space and centre for community cultural activity.
What we're doing
At the Old Library we’re building a resource for the people of Bodmin, a welcoming place where people can meet, interact, engage and be inspired. A home for music, theatre and spoken word. An accessible cafe and venue for the young and old and everyone in between. We have a vision for a better Bodmin with culture at its heart, and we’re looking for supporters who share our vision.
We've already got off to a very promising start. We’ve been successful in securing £80,000 from Arts Council England and Cornwall Council for an exciting programme of activity including a spectacular animation and light show on the Clock Tower; a great Christmas show; the 'Words in Woods' festival, and the St Petroc's Sessions, plus some part-time staff time to run intoBodmin. BUT we need to raise and additional £25,000 through donations, sponsorship and ticket sales to make sure we meet our rent, rates and ultilities at The Old Library or to improve and plan for the future development of the Grade II listed building which will be at the heart of everything we want to do.
Will you help us to reach our target?
To help us secure a vibrant cultural future for Bodmin and raise the £25,000 we need, we'd like to invite you to become a Founder Supporter by making a donation of at least £50 using the link below. All Founder Supporters will have their name on our unique roll of honour and the first 100 supporters will be invited to a unique Supporters Event.
