I thought The Sultan's Elephant was one of the most glorious things I'd ever seen - it brought four days of sheer joy to the streets of London. Artichoke aims to bring a little magic to our cities, and that's an endeavour I'm delighted to support.

I visited Durham City on Sunday night with family and friends and was completely awestruck by the displays. The riverbanks were transformed, the bridges were spectacular and the rooftops sparkled and were a joy to see...'spine tingling'.
 

Linda, Durham on Lumiere

This is one of the most original pieces of art that I have seen in quite some time. Well pulled off and thought provoking. As someone who is not a regular purveyor of the visual arts, the manner in which this was done is inspiring.

What began with mild curiosity, ended up being a full obsession... I'm a writer and I cannot even think of the right words to express the experience - it was beyond stupendous, amazing, and just a bunch of glorious fun. … I was amazed at the joyous spirit that seemed to unify all of London.

Project appeal

Donate now

If you would rather offer your support on a short-term basis, our Project Appeal offers you the opportunity to give funds to a particular project that we are working on. You might choose to give because the project is visiting your hometown or it might represent something close to your heart. Whatever your reason, giving to the project appeal means that all funds raised will go directly to support an element of that project and no other.

You can give as much or as little as you like safe in the knowledge that you are helping a part of the project happen which otherwise might not. We’ll keep you posted with how the project is developing so you can see the results of your donation.

The money we receive through Artichoke Hearts goes directly towards funding our projects.
