If you’ve only been to Jacksons Lane to see a show (or to take part in a class!), you might not be aware of all the other amazing things that happen inside our walls (and out in the community!).
Since our reopening in March 2022 (following our £4.6 million refurbishment) we have welcomed back both artists and our community. Here’s a snapshot of what the team at Jacksons Lane got up to over 2022-2023.
We offered 1,540 hours of studio space to circus artists for free, as well as awarding residencies and support to 72 artists.
We gave 344 free tickets to our Christmas show, Jack and the Beanstalk, through our Pay it Forward scheme.
On Christmas Day 2022, we hosted 103 guests for a glorious festive meal, complete with entertainment and guests. We also delivered 213 Christmas hampers to people in our community who were not able to make the journey to Jacksons Lane.
Over the year, 117 children and young people attended weekly circus workshops, or one of our holiday projects.
And that’s just the start. You can delve more into the data in our annual report.
Like what you see? You can support our activities by joining our Supporters scheme here. Regular donations will allow us to continue doing this work long into the future.
