At a time of rising costs and pressures on family budgets, artsdepot wants to reach out to those on low incomes providing a celebration opportunity this December. Finchley Food Bank is currently supporting 400-500 people weekly and they are super excited about working with us to offer Christmas Hampers to families in need. The hampers will include crackers, biscuits, sweet treats, cranberry jelly & other items that will alleviate stretched budgets and ensure everyone has a seat at the party. The hampers will include show vouchers enabling families to treat themselves to either The Smeds and The Smoos in our Pentland Theatre, or a largely nor-verbal show 'Snow' in our Studio Theatre. Participating families will then be offered further vouchers against shows, workshops & our summer camp over 2023 ensuring access to the creative opportunities available in our venue to local people on low incomes.

Installed across London, many historic fountains were switched off in the 1960s & 70s. Today only a handful of these beautiful public amenities still work. Restoring them brings back vitality to a public space, offers an environmentally friendly public resource, educates and inspires children and creates a sense of local pride. the Mayor of London wants to reduce the number of single-use plastic water bottles used and provide free access to healthy tap water. The average London adult buys more than three plastic water bottles every week - a startling 175 bottles per person. In total, some 7.7billion plastic bottles are bought across the UK each year. We all should adopt small changes that can have a big environmental impact - like refilling reusable bottles with tap water, instead of needlessly buying new single-use ones. Heritage of London is offering a Grant for the some of the renovation and we are looking for more to help with the water connection & other expenses.
