Sponsor a concert at the West Wight Arts Association

Many members of our loyal audience have helped West Wight Arts Association in the past by generously sponsoring one or part of one of our concerts. This has enabled us to keep up the very high standard of performance for which West Wight Arts Association is noted. 

Next season the average cost of fees per concert is nearly £1,680. There are of course many other costs involved, hire of the hall, upkeep of the piano, publicity, printing, insurance etc.

If you enjoy the concerts you might like to consider contributing towards the cost of a forthcoming one, perhaps to celebrate a personal occasion or to commemorate someone. Any contribution you would like to make, large or small, will be very much appreciated.

West Wight Arts Association would welcome any contribution you would like to make, either anonymously or with acknowledgement in the programme.

You could of course specify which concert you would like your donation to go towards and you could contribute without shouldering the whole cost of a concert.

If you would like more details or would like to contribute, please see Judith Hunt in the hall, ring her on 01983 756217 or email juhunt@btinternet.com.

An Alzheimer Café is an informal meeting place, where people whose lives have been affected by dementia can come along to find out more about it’s emotional and psychological impact in a supportive and friendly atmosphere, as well as receiving the benefits of social interaction.

The Café combines a number of elements, bringing about an atmosphere of openness, where people directly and indirectly affected by dementia can discuss issues surrounding the disease, where family, friends, carers, support workers and those with the disease can all enjoy a social and informative event.

For 15 years between 1860 to 1875, Dimbola was Julia’s home and workplace. Now preserved by the Julia Margaret Cameron Trust and open to the public.

Once two adjacent dwellings in the rural idyll of Freshwater Bay, the Camerons built a central tower to form their new home. The name ‘Dimbola’ was chosen by the Camerons after the tea and coffee plantations they owned in Dimbula, Sri Lanka.

Inside the house now are preserved features including Gothic carvings, William Morris wallpaper, her original design stairway, Victorian glass and a re-creation of her bedroom.
