About Broadway Gallery

We are owned and run by the Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation, this unique financial model means that the money from those who rent our houses, shops, offices and industrial units goes directly back into the town.  This includes our grants programme, which in 2022 allocated £196,000 to supporting community groups, clubs and societies as well as individuals who are striving to ‘Be the Best’ at music, sport, art and much more.

But that's not all, this income also supports the Foundation’s other venues and services including the Broadway Cinema & Theatre, Standalone Farm and the Garden City Greenway (13.6 mile route around the Garden City).

So by hiring our venue you'd actually be giving back to the local community too.
