The Billericay Arts Association (BAA) was set up in 1979 as a registered charity to run The Fold as a community arts centre.
It is run and staffed by unpaid volunteer members; only class tutors are paid on a salaried basis.
It is financed by its own activities and occupies The Fold rent-free from Basildon District Council. The bulk of its funds come from class fees and hiring out rooms; other income comes from BAA events, membership subscriptions, donations, grants and the sale of refreshments.
We are always on the look out for volunteers to help run the centre. If you are interested in helping please call or email us at The Fold (See Contact Us page)
