About Us

Arlington Arts is the best choice for live music in West Berkshire. Our line-up is always introducing you to up-and-coming blues and folk artists, as well as veteran craftspeople of their scene. Alongside this we have a vibrant programme of Theatre, Dance and Comedy – as well as being available to hire for conferences, meetings, art galleries and team-building days. The venue has had some massive names perform on our stage; some of our most notable performers have been K.T. Tunstall, Michael Mcintyre, Russell Howard, and King King.

All proceeds from Arlington Arts go to the Mary Hare School For The Deaf Charity. To find out more about this cause please visit the Mary Hare page and see what your money can go towards in the life of deaf and hard hearing people.

Mary Hare

The Mary Hare Foundation

The Mary Hare Foundation was established in 1991 by Sir Philip Wroughton supported by a group of individuals who wanted to help Mary Hare School by raising funds. The Foundation is a registered charity (number 1002680). All profits from Arlington Arts go to The Mary Hare Foundation.
Since the Foundation was established, it has raised over £8 million for development projects at Mary Hare School, including an indoor heated pool, a Year 11 boarding house, and the Arlington Arts Centre.  The school is the biggest school for the deaf in the UK.  Whilst the school receives funding from local authorities and the government, these only cover the teaching and care of pupils.  Development of new facilities and updating of existing ones depend wholly upon fundraising and donations.  The work to raise much needed funds is therefore key to the future of Mary Hare School and its ability to supply excellent provision to so many deaf pupils  going forward.

If you’d like to learn more please visit the Mary Hare website. To find out more how you can donate through Arlington Arts, visit the How To Book page.

The Legal Bits

As a separate registered charity, (number 1002680), The Mary Hare Foundation has been established to raise funds for deaf and hearing impaired children. It depends on the support of donations, grants and other fundraising activities to develop its work in the field of educating deaf children.

The Primary School Appeal

We’re moving to a secure and even brighter future, and we need your help!
Our current primary school is based in a Grade 2* listed building on the edge of Greenham Common in Newbury. It is a beautiful building set in wonderful grounds but it no longer meets our needs, and is difficult to maintain and expensive to modernise.  We are passionate about the children in our care and know that we could do so much more for them if we had a purpose built, modern learning environment, situated on the same site as the secondary school at Snelsmore Common.

To find out more please visit the appeal page or view the appeal brochure.
