Support us and together we will bring more creativity to Bury  

  • The Met aims to nurture and encourage creativity through the opportunities we provide. Whether it’s showcasing artists on our stages, or giving them access to our workshops and recording studios, we believe in allowing community-wide access to the arts.
  • As a charity, we rely on your support and involvement to keep The Met moving forward. If you’re a UK taxpayer your donation is worth 25% more using the gift aid scheme too.
  • Individual givers receive a host of benefits, including discounts at our restaurant Automatic, advance notifications and priority tickets and events.
  • We know our regular donors are the people who most value the work we do to bring music and performance to Bury. We have different levels of support to say thank you, and to help you continue to advocate for the arts in Bury!
