Even a little money can make a big difference at Quay Arts

Did you realise that when you buy a cup of freshly ground barista coffee in our Café Bar, you are helping to support the cultural life of the Isle of Wight? However, the generosity of our supporters goes beyond sales of food, drink and theatre tickets. Gifts of money, time, and even specific items make a huge difference to the amount of work we can do. Together, we can continue to enrich the lives of islanders and visitors with our fantastic programme of events.

See below some of the ways you can help us offer unique opportunities for education and development – today and long into the future.


As a charity, the majority of our revenue is generated through our café, shop, events and creative courses. Every penny we raise is reinvested in our programmes, exhibitions, events and facilities. However, this still leaves us with a shortfall and we are constantly seeking support from individuals to help us sustain and develop our vibrant programme of activities. Whether you make a single donation or join our QuayHolders regular giving scheme, you will know that you are helping us develop greater arts opportunities and activity on the Isle of Wight.

In return we offer you the chance to develop a closer relationship with the Quay, help shape our activity and influence the future development of Quay Arts. We offer three levels of QuayHolder, with a range of benefits as a thank you for your support:
