We’re glad you like what we do. We raise over 93% of the funds that we need through our own efforts. Roughly 10% of our funds come from donations. Our other ways of raising money are:

  • Tickets Sales
  • Room Hire
  • Bar
  • Cafe
  • Fundraising events

All donations, however small, are very valuable to us. If we can claim Gift Aid they can become 25% more valuable. Download a Gift Aid declaration form here and bring it in with your donation.

You can make a donation in a number of ways:

Pop in with the money or cheque (payable to Otley Courthouse).
Post a cheque to us – mark it as a Donation on the back of the cheque
When you buy our tickets on-line through the TicketSolve website (our on-line ticket sales agent) there is a facility to add a donation to your ‘basket’. TicketSolve do NOT take a percentage of the donation.

There is also a donations button at the bottom of every one of the pages on our website, so you can always make a donation by clicking on this button if you prefer.

If you would like to discuss a larger donation towards a specific Courthouse project please do write to us – or just pop in and have a word.

Again … thanks.

David Robson


Otley Courthouse


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.
