Become a Friend of the Courthouse

We re-launched our Friends scheme in June 2015.
You can download the Friends membership form here, or just pop in and collect one – full details of our Friends scheme are given below.

Our funding comes from a range of sources, but in order to survive and to continue providing its current wide range of activities, the Courthouse needs to generate at least 90% of its own finances. We rely on fundraising and donations for additional revenue, and upon the hard work of our team of dedicated volunteers. By becoming a Friend you are playing a big part in helping to keep the Courthouse thriving.

Our new Friends scheme has 3 levels:

All Friends will receive a Friends Card, and early distribution copy of our next programmes, and have first call on ticket bookings so that you can be sure not to miss our most popular events. You will also receive a quarterly newsletter all about what’s going on here at the Courthouse.

ABOUT US

Otley Courthouse is a unique development run by people in Otley, West Yorkshire. After an eight year development period we transformed a redundant nineteenth century magistrates court into a unique arts and resource centre for our community.
