Renovation Fund Donation

Renovation Fund Donation
11 October, 2018

Thanks to Nicholson's Pharmacy for their generous donation to the Renovation fund

Since 1982 the Hawk’s Well has been at the cultural heart of Sligo and has enlivened and entertained the people of the region. The theatre is firmly rooted as a social and cultural hub in the North West with over 50,000 people attending shows annually. However, artistic success doesn’t translate into financial security and few people realise that we are actually a registered charity. Public funding only makes up an average of 35% of our income, so we rely on ticket sales and generous donations from from individuals and companies such as Nicholson's to survive.

35 years in operation has taken its toll on the building and renovation is urgently needed to address accessibility, flooding, capacity and comfort. The estimated cost of the planned improvements is €1.1million.

In February 2017 the theatre was awarded a grant of up to €550K by the Department of Arts. This funding must be matched by the theatre in order to access it. Click HERE to donate.
