The Showroom


Become a supporter and help sustain our ambitious and innovative programme of artists commissions, local projects, talks and events.

The Showroom is a platform to new ways of thinking, researching and communicating.....I am constantly discovering and learning. Viewing shows and attending talks and events is always a gratifying and enriching experience.Maria Sukkar, Benefactor

As a registered charity The Showroom has to raise 100% of its income. We are core funded by The Arts Council but in addition need to raise a significant amount each year from individuals and companies, as well as from funding bodies, trusts and foundations.

At a time when funding is more difficult to secure than ever, money raised from individuals and companies through our Supporters Scheme is much needed and appreciated. The scheme provides essential funding to enable us to continue providing artists with important opportunities with major new commissions (often their first solo presentation in London) at the right moment in their career.

Donations also support the work we do in our local area through our Communal Knowledge programme, which provides opportunities for local people and groups to work with international artists on projects which feed directly into our main programme. These projects create forums for people to reflect upon and speak about the issues that are at stake for them, giving them a platform and a voice.

Join a highly valued group of individuals, get more involved and make a genuine difference. We offer a close and engaged relationship with all our supporters and a range of benefits:

Tax Effective Giving

Any donation, no matter how small or large, can qualify for tax relief under Gift Aid as long as the donor is a UK tax payer. For example: if you give The Showroom gallery a donation of £600, we can reclaim an extra £150 from the Inland Revenue.

If you are a higher rate tax payer you can also benefit. For example: if you make a donation of £3,000, as a higher rate UK tax payer you could be entitled to claim up to £750 from the Inland Revenue. This means that your donation of £3,000 to The Showroom would cost you only £2,250. Similarly if you become a Patron and make a donation of £500, as a higher rate UK tax payer you could be entitled to claim up to £125 from the Inland Revenue. This means that your donation of £500 to The Showroom would cost you only £375.

Each month our current collaborator CIRCA, the new and independently curated digital art platform, commissions the artist(s) exhibiting on Piccadilly Lights to create an exclusive, limited-edition print. The CIRCA Prints are made by some of the most significant artists working today, and offer the unique proposition of affordable prints, limited in availability to the time spent by each artist on the Piccadilly Lights: one month. Proceeds from print sales will be distributed as part of The CIRCA Economy which arises in response to the post-Covid world and recognises that there will be lasting damage inflicted upon the UK cultural sector.

In keeping with The CIRCA Economy's commitment to supporting the UK's struggling creative community, part of the proceeds will kindly be donated by CIRCA to support The Showroom's Programme.
