Humantics CIC

The Forum is owned and managed by Humantics CIC, a Social Enterprise registered as a Community Interest Company.  No one person or shareholder group owns Humantics, it is governed by a board of Directors and neither the Forum nor Humantics are subsidised by local government. In fact, the general trading of the Forum creates about 90% of our income, approximately 10% of our income comes in from donations and fundraising by the dedicated and hardworking volunteers of the Friends of the Forum.

So every penny YOU spend here is re-invested back into the Forum and thats how it lives on. Please help keep Music and Culture alive in our community by supporting the Forum. Read more
