For the past 132 years the Conservatoire has fostered quality art and music in this community. That mission has run like a thread through generations of local residents, connecting and enriching the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. However, like many charities, the Conservatoire struggled to survive the recession and turned to the community in the Save the Con campaign.
Sydney and our new team of trustees have a strong track record of transforming charities and developing innovative and sustainable business models. We have a solid recovery plan to not only turn around the Conservatoire, but to transform and reinvigorate it for a 21st Century community.
Thanks to the efforts of the community, we raised over £200,000. The strength of the new business plan enabled us to complete the refinancing, and our new strategic partnership with City Lit has been confirmed. We will be announcing more details regarding City Lit and the refurbishment of the Art Building soon.
Thank you so much for your support. We are moving towards an incredible future, all because of you.
