30 Stories

At Square Chapel we truly value the diversity of our local community and the people who make Square Chapel the vibrant and exciting place it is today. To celebrate this, we’re curating a ’30 Stories’ exhibition to coincide with 30 amazing years since the original Square Chapel building was saved from demolition by a group of 6 passionate local people and we need your help to make it happen!

‘30 stories’ will showcase 30 unique stories from the people who have helped shape the organisation you see today; one of the largest cultural providers in the Borough, providing over 300 live performances and engaging nearly 3,000 individuals, including school children, young people and vulnerable and hard to reach adults in our communities every year.

Each of the professionally shot images and the accompanying stories will uncover the life changing moments and inspiring stories that Square Chapel has helped to create over the last 30 years; the stories that have had the most impact on the people from across our communities, stories that bring people together and stories that demonstrate the importance of diversity in our society.

As a charity we rely on the generosity of our friends and supporters, without whom it simply wouldn’t be possible to do all that we do today.

To create the ’30 Stories’ exhibition we need your generous support.
