HOW YOUR MONEY HELPS
Every season we try to keep our ticket prices below those of local theatres. We have no reserves to carry forward to the following year. During our 2019 season, we experienced severe weather conditions that caused us to cancel a number of performances in the tent and consequently, the theatre suffered a loss.
Each year before and after the season, we have ongoing costs, and preparing for the 2020 season has also brought outlays. All of which we were handling before the pandemic hit us in the UK. Now, in lockdown, we cannot run our planned fundraising activities and, we won’t have any income this year. We have even had to postpone the launch of our new book about the theatre.
Additionally, the theatre is in the process of updating the LED lighting, which will improve the audience experience, reduce energy consumption and thereby enable the installation of air conditioning, as well as improving safety.
