THE PHOENIX IS RISING AT BATTERSEA ARTS CENTRE

On 13 March 2015, a fire destroyed our Grand Hall. Next year, it will re-open with a Phoenix Season of shows and events inspired by its 125-year history.


A BIG THANK YOU AND WAYS TO HELP


We continue to be massively thankful for all the incredible support and donations that have allowed us to continue running shows, events and creative projects while the Grand Hall is being rebuilt.

As we enter our third year without income from the Grand Hall, here are some of the ways you can get involved and help us get through this final stage before it re-opens in 2018:

You can support us by buying a ticket, visiting the Scratch Bar, or volunteering to usher our shows.


MAKE A DONATION >>

We would be grateful for a donation of any size, no gift is too small!


BUY A GRAYSON PERRY KEEPSAKE >>

Turner Prize award winning Grayson Perry used to have a studio in our basement and after the Grand Hall fire he made us a sculpture to help with our fundraising. Featuring Grayson's childhood teddy bear, Alan Measles, the sculpture returns to his familiar groove of poking fun at the art establishment. It will be sold to the highest bidder when Christie's run a special gala auction at Battersea Arts Centre in October.

You can own a sticker, badge or tote bag featuring Grayson Perry's design in exchange for a small donation. (Features strong language).


TAKE HOME A PIECE OF THE GRAND HALL >>


Take home a slice of the charred wooden beams salvaged from the old Grand Hall, cut by Battersea Arts Centre's carpenter Joe Iredale, in exchange for a small donation. (From as little as 50p. Collection only)


PRE-ORDER A STUNNING BOOK OF GRAND HALL PHOTOS >>

In the months after the fire, artist and designer Jake Tilson documented the salvage process in a beautiful big photography book.
