We've hit our goal!

Hello again,

I'm writing to share the VERY exciting news that we've just hit the £8,000 total! From the very bottom of our hearts, thank you all so much.

Just to breakdown where this is going, the money will be split between:

  • Paying overdue rent
  • Electrical work needed for health & safety
  • Carpentry work to clear fire exits 
  • Other fire safety works
  • Storage space for everything cleared out of the theatre

Everything leftover or raised from our new stretch target of £10,000 will be fed back into the theatre to improve the quality of productions when we get up and running again.

It has been heartwarming reading everyone's comments and seeing your love for this gem of a theatre and the people that run it. Leonie has mentioned how wonderful it's been getting in touch with old friends and performers, and I haven't seen her so excited in years.

Details of the rewards will follow when the fundraiser ends.

Thank you once more, 

Asher x
