Open Letter from The Leatherhead Theatre
I am writing on the behalf of the Trustees of the Leatherhead Revival Trust, the charitable trust that runs the Leatherhead Theatre.
The Trustees are a group of local residents who are passionate about our unique Grade II Listed Theatre, and oversee a charitable trust to ensure the venue's future.
The Trustees and Theatre Management wish to thank all our Theatre Friends, volunteers and customers for supporting the Leatherhead Theatre since the Leatherhead Revival Trust took over the Theatre lease in 2005.
On the renewal of the lease on 24 December 2015 for 10 years our 'Play Your Part' fundraising appeal was launched. We would particularly like to thank all those individuals and groups who have contributed to this fundraising appeal.
To date the appeal has raised £86,208, but it is still far short of our target of £100,000. In order for us to continue all that we want to do for the Leatherhead Theatre, it is essential that we reach this target.
The Leatherhead Theatre is managed with very limited resources. The venue and charitable trust receive no funding from Mole Valley District Council, Arts England or any other funding bodies. The Theatre relies entirely on income from ticket sales, venue hire, our coffee shop, bar and donations.
As we begin 2017, we are reaching out to ask if you could help us in some way. You could become a Theatre Friend, work as a volunteer - we need expertise of all kinds, or by helping us financially.
For more information about our appeal or to make a donation, please contact us on 01372 365141 or via our website. We look forward to welcoming you to the Theatre in the near future.
Director, The Leatherhead Theatre Company Ltd
