Loudwater Community Arts

Due to the COVID-19 crisis and following the guidance issued by the Prime Minister on Monday, 23 March Loudwater is now closed and will remain so until the current restrictions are lifted and it is felt we can open in a manner safe to all our staff, volunteers and visitors. Being part of a charitable organisation, like many we are really feeling the pinch and if you’d like to support the Studio by becoming a ‘Friend’ or through a one-off donation this would be greatly appreciated.  Please click here to find out more and make your donation.
We wish everyone a safe journey for both themselves and their loved ones during this time and hope that we can welcome you all back soon.  Take care and stay safe.
The Loudwater Team

Postcode Community Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.   Our project received £17,500 from the Trust to help us rebuild the Studio after the flooding in 2019
