Ropetackle Shoreham Outreach A Band Anyone Can Join

Ropetackle is a registered charity (no. 1109381) working for the benefit of the community, but we receive no core funding to cover our operating costs. Our remit is wide and aims to be as inclusive as possible, but to keep going in these increasingly challenging times, we need sustainable financial support.

From relaxed and dementia-friendly films afternoons, to toddler films and interactive story times, free live music in the foyer on Saturday afternoons, and pre-show suppers, as well as rehearsal space and workshops, Ropetackle is proud to be an open and accessible arts venue to be enjoyed by all.
