Our Supporters

Matthews Yard recently celebrated its 5th anniversary. This wouldn’t have been possible without the help and support of our friends, family, investors, donors, members and customers together with the moral support of the wider Croydon community. We thank each and every one of you.

We have had support in various forms over the years, but would like to particularly acknowledge the financial support offered through our membership programme, our KickStarter Appeal for the Studio Theatre, our Investment drive and our Loan Fund.

This is not an exhaustive list of everyone that has helped or supported us and it is a work in progress. If your name should be here and its not, then please give us a nudge!
