Please help us build our extension!

thermometer-1613993_960_720We are a victim of our own success and now need more space in our award-winning theatre. To our cramped backstage area, we need to add another dressing room which will particularly benefit our youth theatre and comply with present legal requirements, as well as a rehearsal area and storage space.

By dint of ticket sales of our successful shows and intensive fund-raising, the members have raised a substantial amount of money – but building costs being what they are – we need more!

Since launching our fund-raising drive at the Gala evening at the Theatre in October, 2016, the following has been raised: (This is in addition to funds already raised by our successful productions over the years, plus fund-raising events).

A GRANT FROM THE FOYLE FOUNDATION OF £25,000, subject to conditions.
A GRANT FROM THE WORSHIPFUL COMPANY OF GROCERS OF £5,000, subject to conditions.

DONATIONS BY STUDIO MEMBERS: £35,899.70 PLUS GIFT AID
