We will Decorate, invest in Lighting and Sound. Our seats need to be repaired and re-covered. we have to invest in Social Distancing goods for reopening.

Brixham Theatre CIO is part of a national initiative launched by Theatres Trust to help us raise funds via a virtual bucket shake this festive season.

We have been in Lockdown since March of this year. It is giving us the opportunity to decorate and upgrade.

Our Virtual Bucket Shake

Every year we hold a bucket shake at our pantomime which raises us £100 in vital funds. This year due to the global pandemic, we are unable to do this. We are facing a loss of income from ticket sales, merchandise and bars, as well as missing out on the opportunity for a traditional bucket collection. This is why we’d like to invite you to take part in a Virtual Bucket Collection this panto season.

Your donations will be used to… Help Decorate, Buy Lights and Improve Sound.

About Brixham Theatre

Brixham Theatre was built, as part of the Town Hall in the mid. 1800's. We have almost 250 seats and have many "sell out shows", with local drama and comedy groups, tribute acts and other performing arts. 

We are wholly run, manned and operated by a valuable group of Volunteers.                  No one gets paid. 

We registered as a Charity back in May 2018.

About Save Our Theatres

In villages, towns and cities across the country, theatres are at the heart of their community. Places to come together, to be inspired and be entertained. Theatres are where our best-loved actors learn their craft and thousands of others learn valuable skills. 

But we risk losing this forever.

Theatres saw their main source of income disappear in an instant when they closed in March in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

We still don’t know when they will be able to reopen fully. This ongoing uncertainty puts theatres in a perilous situation. The government’s bailout is spread across all cultural organisations and certainly won’t be enough to save all of the UK’s theatres.

Every day theatres are facing the tough decision to make staff redundant and to close their doors until next year. And there is a real risk that those closures could be permanent. 

Without urgent support, we could lose our nation’s amazing theatres. Please help us to make sure our theatres survive this crisis and will be there to be enjoyed by future generations.
