Do you or a loved one cherish the theatre and want to be a part of the heart of it? Or are you a company that wants to show support for your local theatre?
So far dozens of people have named a seat in our auditorium, either for themselves or as a special gift for an important person in their life- with inscriptions ranging from anonymous messages of support to ‘in memoriam’ messages for their loved ones.
As a not for profit charity all money raised from the campaign will be put back into the theatre to keep it moving forward: to keep it developing and being able to create an eclectic programme of innovative and exciting work. It will also support our Access performances for our disabled customers as well as our community and youth work within the local and surrounding area to keep the theatre accessible to as many people as possible!
For a minimum donation of £250 with various payment options the lasting memory of a loved one can remain a part of the theatre forever.
