To continue our journey the theatre is in need of some serious maintenance and upgrading and we would like to reach out for your help

The theatre needs a lot of upgrades and maintenance, but we are finding it difficult to complete the necessary repairs and work because of a lack of funding and this this needs to be addressed before we can even update any of our lighting and technical equipment. We recently received some local funds to lower our stage, making it more accessible, and to complete necessary electrical repairs. We are very appreciative of the additional funding we have received to carry out these works and to also order new fire doors. This is only the tip of the iceberg though, as we still require more funds to fix the roof and repair the auditorium's ceiling and top walls due to dampness.   After our most recent boiler service, we have also learned that the parts for our antiquated boiler are no longer readily available, and additionally we have survived with no heating in the back of the theatre. We need a new boiler and to update our heating system throughout the theatre. We know this is a lot to ask, but our goal is to maintain Thurnscoe Little Theatre for many generations to come, providing a space for budding artists and theatre enthusiasts to flourish.
