Support Us

As a charity we rely on the support of our audiences who share a passion for making Bury a great place to live and work.

Our work supports the social, cultural and economic development of Bury, providing access to the arts for our community and bringing visitors to the town to invest in our local economy.  The Met is a real point of pride for local people and the location of many a happy evening.

Right now we don’t have our regular ticket income with so many events postponed. Help us to support our community and come back stronger by considering one of the options below: 

  • Buy tickets – yes, really. We’ve got gigs on-sale all the way up to next April (including rearranged dates of cancelled shows). Give yourself or a friend you definitely want to get together with then this is all over something to look forward too. It’s obvious, but cashflow will help support us all during this time. 
  • Gift vouchers – We’re already excited by what we can do when we re-open. You can even send gift credit out to friends by email. If there’s nothing you fancy buying on sale yet, there will be soon! 
  • Membership – Our membership packages start from just £5 a month. There are lots of perks including advance notifications of big events. Becoming a member is a great way to stay in touch and we’ll be working on ideas for some members-only digital treats while the building is closed. 
  • Donate – Donations are vital in allowing us to continue our existing work with artists, workshops and audiences within our community. We have a whole host of ideas dedicated to ensuring we can continue to entertain, uplift, and inspire our community during this time, but we need your help to do this.

If you’ve already got tickets for an event that is cancelled or rescheduled then we’ll be getting in touch with you soon, by email first if possible. We’ll refund tickets for cancelled events, or you can have tickets for a new date. You could convert your ticket fee into credit or a gift voucher for future shows. Or you could convert your ticket price (or part of it) into a donation. Any of these options will help support The Met.  

Thank you for your support!

Corporate Membership

We are grateful to our corporate sponsors for their support. Their contribution to The Met is absolutely vital. They help us make our work accessible, and make a difference to the lives of local people.


As we all do our bit to help keep our communities safe and healthy, The Met has to close its doors (temporarily) to the public. This goes against everything we aim to be; inclusive, welcoming and packed with music, creativity and happy people. Which means we’re looking ahead to when we can re-open, and what we can do in the meantime to keep reaching people. 


We’re proud to have patrons who value our work and lend us their influence. Our patrons are prominent in the arts and business, they speak for us and help us to spread the word about the great work we do.
