When you support the Barbican Fund, you are joining thousands of people who help sustain and grow what we all love about the Barbican.

We innovate with outstanding artists and performers to create an international programme that crosses art forms, investing in the artists of today and tomorrow, and making art accessible to all.

Your generous donations could mean:

  • a young person will feel the excitement of waiting in the wings for the first time
  • a family will experience a concert together for free
  • young artists can develop through training, mentoring and collaboration

These are the kinds of experiences that change lives, forever and for the better. We receive donations of all sizes from thousands of generous people like you every year. Every single gift helps inspire more people to discover and love the arts. Thank you for supporting arts without boundaries.

‘For students from a small town in the North West to work with world-known theatre establishments has really to put their learning into a wider context & establish aspirations beyond their local area‘
