Interested in joining the ranks of The Friends of the Playhouse?

Updated: Jan 6

The Friends of the Playhouse are hosting a range of fundraising events to continue to help towards equipment for the theatre.

Over the years they have raised funds which have contributed to providing items like new hearing aids, a piano, lighting and sound equipment, and stage curtains. We also help to support wider fundraising projects such as the provision of a stair lift.

They do this in a number of ways including providing volunteer staff to take tickets, selling programmes and welcoming patrons into the theatre assist with marketing and promotions. They also organise social events all year round, offer days out including theatre visits and hold monthly Saturday coffee mornings in the Playhouse. To date they have raised over £260,000.

On Saturday 6th January they will host their first coffee morning of the New Year which is held from 10am to 11.30 am in the upstairs bar and lower foyer, serving hot drinks and biscuits.

There will also be a monthly raffle and the first prize is 2 tickets to a show of your choice (to be taken within 3 months) plus some other lovely prizes .


On Saturday 20th January at The Coffee Morning there will be a General Knowledge Quiz

On Saturday 27 January at The Coffee Morning .There is the quarterly draw of The Millenium Club when the first prize is £50 .Numbers are still available it is only £12 a year to join so please speak to a member of the committee at The Saturday Coffee Morning 


All the above events are continuing fundraising efforts which go to support the theatre
