We want to nurture talent through the opportunities we provide, from showcasing artists on our small stage to presenting them at larger festivals to helping them record and distribute material in our recording studio.

Demonstrating that our local community supports us means we can continue to bring funding into the area and support the social, cultural and economic development of Bury.

Our ticket and workshop prices are significantly lower than other organisations because we believe in allowing the whole community access to the arts and its benefits. But we need your help to continue this.

As a charity we rely on your support so please help us in anyway you can. Our levels of support are set out below and what you, as an advocate of The Met, can enjoy in return.
