I’ve lost count of how many shows I’ve been involved in or watched at this lovely theatre, but it is always a pleasure. Long live the fabulous Fisher!

Louise Salmon 30th May 2019

Here’s to a bright, beautiful and fabulous future for the fantastic Fisher Theatre! With all our best wishes, from Harvey & Louise at Dramatic Impact

I couldn’t resist making another donation to round up the numbers. This appeal means so much to the town. And David Fisher’s last standing theatre so deserves to be futureproofed for ever

Sally Gagen 15th May 2019

So, my lottery numbers came up after 11 years of paying in ! Let’s hope I can pay in for another 11 years to help keep this marvellous theatre going

We all need to help and keep on helping until we reach our target so don't make your donation a oneoff; make one as regularly as you can.

Michelle Steele 2nd May 2019

The theatre is such an asset to our town and is much loved by so many of our customers; closure would be unfathomable! Here’s hoping enough of us get behind the campaign in order for The Fisher to prosper for years to come!

Tanya Martin 26th April 2019

We're proud to have the very last Fisher Theatre just minutes away and we regularly have guests staying who have come to Bungay specifically to attend events at the Theatre. We wish everyone luck with this ambitious fundraiser. We hope this helps, and we will host a Fisher Tea Party later in the year. From Mark & Tanya and all at The Castle Inn
