Culture Welcomes Refugees
Pound Arts in Corsham has introduced an initiative to open the doors of cultural organisations across the county to welcome refugees and provide free tickets. A host of organisations have agreed to take part - meaning free tickets to music, theatre, museums etc. The initiative is spreading beyond Wiltshire. To book just get in touch with your local organisation and ask for tickets. Our communities are keen to welcome all. More details on Pound Arts shows are available here Homepage - Pound Arts. Look out for other organisations showing the Culture Welcomes Refugees logo to find other venues joining in this initiative.
