Local traders and cultural organisations have renewed their support for the arts in Darlington by backing a membership scheme.
Supporters as varied as Head of Steam and Green Theatre are offering the members of Darlington for Culture (DfC) special benefits as part of a membership scheme which rewards people who support the work of the organisation.
Darlington for Culture is run by volunteers and supports a wide range of arts events, including co-ordinating the annual Darlington Arts Festival.
This is the second year when such a variety of supporters have signed up to the membership scheme, which is sponsored by Creative Darlington.
DfC chair John Dean said: “It is brilliant that all these organisations have agreed to back our membership scheme for a second year. Mutual support is at the heart of what our organisation does and this typifies what we stand for.
“We are grateful to everyone who has signed up and hope it encourages more local people to join Darlington for Culture.”
