We need your support

We need £7.1 million to make Phoenix 2020 happen. Arts Council England has awarded us £4 million for Phoenix 2020, and Leicester City Council has committed £1 million to the project.

We have 80% of the funding in place, but we need to raise at least £500,000 more in the coming months to enable building to start later this year.

Our team is working hard to secure funding from a range of sources including trusts and foundations, sponsorship from local businesses, and money from individual donors.

There’s a long way to go and much work yet to be done, but we are well on the way.
