A massive THANK YOU from everyone at The Ropetackle Arts centre.

Ropetackle couldn’t exist without the amazing support of the local community. In 2019 we faced the very real threat of closure.

We are overwhelmed and exceptionally grateful for the extraordinary efforts of our supporters which have secured our survival to 2023.

By becoming a patron, friend or sponsor you are making a fantastic contribution towards maintaining Ropetackle for the local community.
