Become a valued Patron of The Guildhall Trust and support the future of Portsmouth Guildhall. With two levels of patronage to choose from, your gift will support the development of Guildhall Studio or our Renaissance project.

Having stood proudly at the heart of the community since 1881, Portsmouth Guildhall is now embarking on an ambitious programme of Renaissance to ensure the building continues to thrive for another 130 years, becoming one of the leading cultural organisations in the country and continuing to provide inspiring, engaging, sustainable, relevant, and accessible opportunities in the beating heart of this historic city.

Our ambitions for the Guildhall rely on the generosity of the public, businesses as well as trusts and foundations who share our vision and commitment to this exciting project to create a Guildhall we can all be proud of and enjoy for years to come.
