Celebrating its 200th anniversary in 2033, The Poly looks forward to another two centuries of success!

In less than ten years’ time The Poly will be celebrating its bicentenary and to commemorate this extraordinary milestone, the charity is launching POLY200 - a £200,000 For 200 Years' fundraising campaign. This is to support the work of the much-loved arts venue and to ensure it will be here as a community asset for generations to come.

The funds raised will help enable The Poly to grow and develop its offer, improve the building and keep delivering a diverse cultural programme for its communities in Falmouth and wider Cornwall.

Under the banner of POLY200, and over the next ten years, The Poly is planning a series of fundraising initiatives to achieve its target – and it’s reaching out to the community to get involved. So, if you know how to put the ‘fun’ in fundraising and have some great ideas, The Poly wants to hear from you!

You can help The Poly by:

·        Looking out for and participating in POLY200 events.

·        Sharing your fundraising idea to help The Poly reach its target.

·        Leading an activity or event - or sponsoring someone who could.

·        Joining The Poly as a Member, Business Supporter or Patron.

·        Making a donation:

·        Through your continued custom – by buying tickets and shopping in The Poly Guild!

The Poly’s Manager Ed Cartwright says:

“Despite the challenges of the economic downturn, The Poly continues to provide local people, and visitors, with a place to learn, experience and enjoy – while championing innovation in the arts, science and industry.

“As a small local charity, that receives no regular funding, it’s important we work closely with the community to ensure The Poly’s future. POLY200 is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to show their support, as well as their creativity in suggesting ‘funtastic’ ideas, to help raise money!”        

Please get in touch with your ideas at and keep an eye out for #POLY200.
