Leave a gift in your Will
"One of my proudest achievements is the large number of former Central students working in the profession with a knowledge and appreciation of the use of puppetry in their practice. My legacy gift to Central is designed to help sustain the understanding of this unique performing art. Today, students are facing such enormous debts that even a relatively small amount given - in particular to arts students – is of real value to the student."
Penny Francis MBE, former Central tutor
