Top Knotch Theatre would like to stage an outdoor performance of The Wind in the Willows at Loggerheads Country park this summer.

by Elen Bodey in Buckley, Wales, United Kingdom


After our successful first performance at Theatr Clwyd last year we madea profit of £300 which we hope to put towards venue hire , props and costume costs.  Unfortunately this isn’t enough as, unlike last year, we have the additional cost of paying for rehearsal space. As a young company  we are unable to afford a rehearsal room and are having to request donations from the cast. We would very much appreciate your help to raise funds to enable us to produce the quality of work we aspire to create. We have some wonderful ideas to produce props and the set from recycled materials. 

Our company would like to appoint a creative costume designer to help develop our exiting ideas of the woodland where our characters will be brought to like. We look forward to developing our productions skills and creativity whilst also giving more opportunities for young community members to have an opportunity to contribute their ideas to this exciting project. The show will be aimed at children and their families and will held in the summer holidays. 

How The Money Will Be Spent


All monies raised will be put back into the company and will go towards funding every aspect of the production. We would like to hire a costume designer to help us make costumes to make our visions come alive. Another area we would like to raise money for is creating the set and hopefully funding a music band. 

About The Company:


Top Knotch Theatre is a theatre company based in North Wales. We specialise in creating responsive, bold and innovative work. Top Knotch Theatre is entirely spearheaded by young people aged 16-25 who Act, Produce, Direct, Stage Manage and Tech the shows. We want to give young people the opportunity to develop their skills and ignite their passion for acting. 

We feel there is a distinct lack of opportunities for young people to be at the forefront of Theatre Companies so Top Knotch  was designed to encourage people aged 16-25 to be fully involved and the opportunity to develop their confidence, knowledge and skills. 



Those who donate to our project will receive a special mention in our programme as contributors to our company as well as access to our rehearsals including regular check ups with our directors to ensure their money is being spent wisely. Contributors will also be invited to our dress rehearsal.



We would welcome any offers of sponsorship from local companies who may have an interest in our company’s vision. 


This project offers rewards in return for your donation.
