Make a one off donation

Thank you for supporting the work of Open City and the Open House festival. For three decades we have staged the extraordinary Open House festival every September opening the doors of amazing buildings all over London for hundreds of thousands of people to explore and enjoy for free. We estimate that since Open City was founded, around 2.8 million people have come to the Open House festival and tens of thousands of children have benefited from our workshops and learning programmes.

However, as a small charity, we have always funded our work with income we earn from running events throughout the year, and as society takes important steps to defeat the coronavirus, we have been hard hit by the lockdown which has stopped almost all our sources of income. At this time, one off donations will be a critical boost in helping the charity weather the impact of Covid-19 and protect the future of the Open House festival.
