Jamie Watton Fund

The Jamie Watton Fund Image

This fund was established in memory of Jamie Watton, South East Dance’s former Artistic Director and Chief Executive, who died suddenly after a short illness in July 2018. It was Jamie’s vision to create a home for dance in the South East - a place where artists and the community could come together to experience and celebrate the joy of dance.


The Jamie Watton Fund aims to:


  • help complete The Dance Space
  • provide bursaries for new and emerging dance artists and choreographers
  • offer support to young people at the start of their career, particularly those who may struggle to enter the dance sector without it


Every donation made to The Jamie Watton Fund before 31st October 2020 will be redirected to provide emergency funding for South East dance artists and practitioners affected by COVID-19.
