Escape Arts aims to make heritage, culture and art accessible and engaging to all its participants and to The Old Slaughterhouse visitors.

Support from visitors, Friends, companies and charitable organisations enable Escape to reach out into the community to engage new audiences, deliver learning and education activities in schools and through local events and festival through workshops and community programmes.

Escape is extremely grateful to all its supporters whose generosity has enabled it to deliver exhibitions, education, family and public programmes and to maintain free admission to The Old Slaughterhouse.
