Introducing our 2020 Charity Partner!

Bell Court has chosen Stratford-upon-Avon’s Escape Arts as its charity partner for 2020, meaning shoppers will be treated to some exciting, family friendly arts, crafts, music and theatre!

Both Bell Court and Escape Arts are busy putting together a programme of fundraising activities which will kick off at the leisure and retail destination with a launch event on Random Acts of Kindness Day on Monday 17th February, so keep your eye out for more information.

The award-winning Escape Arts uses creative and heritage-led workshops to bring people of all age groups together and support their wellbeing. All money raised from the partnership will be used to support and develop its work.

The partnership with Bell Court marks a homecoming for the charity, as it used to be based on the site of Bell Court before the redevelopment, when it moved to its current home at the Old Slaughterhouse Heritage & Arts Centre off Sheep Street.

Karen Williams, Chief Executive Officer at Escape Arts said ‘we are absolutely delighted to be working with the team at Bell Court, we have very fond memories of working in the space and look forward to involving the whole community across a fantastic programme of creative fundraising activities celebrating local people, local businesses and the heritage of our fabulous town.

Rich Jones, Centre Manager of Bell Court, added: “We have chosen Escape Arts as they do some really great work in the Stratford-upon-Avon community with people of all ages, from children to seniors. I’m confident this is going to be a very beneficial and collaborative partnership that will raise much needed funds for this brilliant charity.”
