As a charity we rely on a mix of self-generated income from onsite activities, an annual grant from Haringey Council, and donations. 100% of the money we make through our events and trading goes back into the charity, to support free or subsidised access to the Park and Palace and help us repair and maintain these assets. Our commitment to care for the Park and Palace has not changed, but our income has fallen drastically due to the coronavirus pandemic.
To be blunt, the charity is forecasting a funding gap of £1m this year, and – unless the outlook changes – around £1m next year too.
Alexandra Park and Palace is an incredible resource. Although we have had to restrict access to some areas in response to the pandemic, we are proud that most of the park remains open, that the Palace building is supporting the response effort, acting as a food distribution hub.
As well as responsibilities to care for the Park and the Palace, we are also looking at how we might need to operate in the future and offer the very best programme we can, including our Creative Learning and community activities.
Your support will help.
We know that these are difficult times for many, and many households are struggling with finances. But if you can afford to make a donation towards the upkeep of the Park and Palace, your support will be appreciated more than ever.
Anything you can afford – of any amount, whether a one-off or regular gift – will help maintain the Park and Palace during this crisis and put us in a better place to come out the other side.
We wish you and your loved ones all the best in these unprecedented times and look forward to welcoming you back to the Palace as soon as we can.
You can support us with a one-off gift or a more regular donation. Every £1 will go directly towards our charitable aims.

Alexandra Palace is a charity, run for the benefit of everyone. Our Park, Palace and spectacular events have been enriching lives since 1863, but the coronavirus pandemic has hit us hard. To be blunt, we are looking at a £1m shortfall this year and the same again next year. We know this time has been hard on many people but, if you can afford it, your support will help us get through this crisis.
