We’ve launched our Catalyst Evolve Campaign


St Helens arts centre and charity, the Citadel, is launching a new fundraising appeal which will see every donation, between now and August 2019, doubled by the Arts Council. The fundraising appeal will raise money to enable the Citadel to expand its community arts programme, benefiting local people of all ages.

Fay Lamb, Chief Executive at the Citadel says: ‘We were delighted to be successful in the Citadel’s bid for Arts Council match funding. We are the only organisation in St Helens to have secured this fantastic award, which is a real reflection of our achievements to date and our ambitions for the future.’

The Citadel is an arts charity which provides a range of community arts workshops, including creative writing, drama and music – all designed to use the transformative impact of the arts to change local lives.
