URGENT BUILDING APPEAL

We very much need your help! We’re nearing the point of our large and wonderful building becoming unfit for purpose. The Claremont building has been an important part of Islington’s community for over 100 years. We’re known nationally and internationally for our work with community arts, especially with isolated older people.

But we’re in danger of losing the base from which we operate. There’s no reception, no lift to any of the four floors, the toilets haven’t been modernised since the 1950’s, and there are few areas for social gathering. Plaster and masonry are starting to crumble…

Through the generosity of individuals and grant-making trusts, we have raised £577,000 so far, of the £762,663 needed. It may sound like a lot to raise but even small donations add up.

Be a star and do something special that will benefit thousands of people for the next 100 years!

Will you help us?!

The Flamenco Dancers de Claremont! A short clip from our Variety Show, Summer 2018, this time from another fairly recently formed group. As with the Ukulele group, the Flamenco Dancers mostly had never danced this style before joining. There’s also now a Castanets group! Click the “Expand in all Directions” icon to see full screen.
