Webster Memorial Theatre is part of a national initiative launched by Theatres Trust to help us raise funds via a virtual bucket shake this festive season.
We as ANGUSalive are a registered charity, we have been closed since March 2020 with no shows being held at the theatre. In order to sustain our theatres, we need your support and would greatly appreciate any donation you can give.
Our Virtual Bucket Shake
Every year we hold a bucket shake but 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 ensure the sustainability of our theatre.

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 and to have their doors remained closed. 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.
