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:

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.
A GRANT FROM THE GEOFF AND FIONA SQUIRE FOUNDATION OF £2,5000.
DONATIONS BY STUDIO MEMBERS: £35,899.70 PLUS GIFT AID
DONATIONS BY MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC, LOCAL ORGANISATIONS, TRUSTS AND BUSINESSES: £6,830 PLUS GIFT AID WHERE APPLICABLE.
FUND-RAISING EVENTS, GALAS ETC: £2,000

TOGETHER WITH THE PROCEEDS FROM OUR SUCCESSFUL PRODUCTIONS, WE HAVE £120,000 TOWARDS THE LONG-ANTICIPATED BUILDING EXTENSION.

DURING THE WONDERFUL WEEK OF THE RUN OF LES MISERABLES (SCHOOLS EDITION) 19 – 24 FEBRUARY 2018, WE ARE HOLDING A SPECIAL GALA NIGHT BEFORE THE SHOW ON FRIDAY 23. DRINKS, CANAPES AND A PREMIUM RAFFLE, STARTING AT 7 P.M. TICKETS £20.

A BUMPER MEDIEVAL BANQUET IS PLANNED FOR LATER THIS YEAR, AMONG OTHER EXCITEMENTS!

AND OUR WORK ON RAISING GRANTS FROM CHARITABLE TRUSTS IS ON-GOING.

If you can help in any way, if you would like to become a donor or if you know of any interested parties or have any bright ideas, please contact Jackie Pilkington at jackie@pilk.co.uk

STUDIO THEATRE HAS BEEN CALLED ‘AN ASSET TO SALISBURY’ AND ‘A HIDDEN GEM’. PLEASE HELP US EXPAND AND IMPROVE.
