Corn Exchange Roof Fund Appeal
This site will be under construction …
The 160 year old Corn Exchange roof is leaking and needs major repairs. To do this we need your help to raise funds.
Wallingford’s historic Corn Exchange is embarking on a major project costing £500,000 to replace the roof on the Grade II listed Victorian building. The existing glass roof, the 1856 original, leaks badly in poor weather and is damaging the building’s interior and infrastructure.
The Corn Exchange Wallingford Roof Appeal has been launched and a number of fund raising events will be held during the year to secure the finances.
Please take a look at our video
A dedicated team of volunteers has already started the process of applying for various grants and will be appealing to local businesses for sponsorship. If you can help, please email StopSingingInTheRain@cornexchange.org.uk
Work is expected to start in July and will be completed early autumn in time for the coming season of films, live shows and Sinodun Players’ productions.
So, if you love theatre and cinema and would like to donate to help preserve this very important amenity for Wallingford and surrounding area, here’s how to do it:
