What Happens to the Shoebox now?

by | Apr 12, 2024

After an incredible few months, we’ve raised a whopping £49,430 (and counting!) from our crowdfunder 🎉

Once again, a huge thank you to all of you who contributed to and shared our campaign!

So…what happens now? 

Well, you can still contribute to the crowdfunding campaign until 30 April 2024. As before, any additional funds we raise will go directly to our attempts to buy and refurbish our Castle Meadow premises.

A snap from our post-crowdfunding celebration.

If you selected a reward for your contribution, we’re currently working our way through these and will be in touch soon.

Our next steps will be to apply for a commercial mortgage and to approach the landlord with an offer to buy the building. We will of course keep you up to date with any big developments, as well as our progress with the building’s internal make over!

If someone had told us six months ago that we’d be in this position now, we simply wouldn’t have believed them. The prospect of continuing to offer our Hidden Street tours, our other experiences and, most importantly, our community work long into the future is only a possibility because of you. So thank you!
