Hawk’s Well Renovation- Creating a world-class theatre for the people of the North West

Renovation is urgently needed to improve the Hawk’s Well facilities and appearance. The theatre has been in operation for 35 years and that time has taken its toll on the building. Capital improvements will enable us to enhance the theatre for the whole community and make the Hawk’s Well truly accessible to everyone.

On the 13th of February 2017, we received the exciting news that the Hawk’s Well had been awarded a €550,000 capital grant from the Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs. This grant has been awarded to assist the Hawk’s Well to renovate the theatre’s entrance and foyer space, to create an accessible and inviting building for all. It will assist with upgrading the auditorium to bring it in line with modern standards and will also implement essential flood prevention measures. This grant gives us an unprecedented opportunity to develop and secure the theatre for generations to come.

The building improvements we have planned have an estimated cost of €1.1million and will take at least three years to implement. We have to raise at least 50% of the costs ourselves through a mix of fund-raising initiatives and efforts.

If you would like to join a mailing list to be keep up to date on our renovation plans or for information about the various ways you can donate to the fund, please contact Jane Parsons (
