This week we opened the new 230 seat studio theatre in the Great Hall on time and in budget, (OK we haven’t painted every single wall and the heating is going in next month). These last few days have been a little like one of those reality TV renovation programmes with every member of staff mopping and painting skirting whilst builders fix doors and check everything works. And it all does. A huge thank you should go to our builders Deeks and Steere who have been always cheerful and prepared to find solutions, and to Stage Electrics who have been equally upbeat.New Great Hall 2

We now have a more flexible, adaptable and better resourced main space. It will mean that we will be able to accommodate more events, we will be able to show a greater range and scale of contemporary theatre and, by using it more, we will become more resilient.

None of this could have happened without the support and encouragement of the local community, particularly our members and patrons.  Arts Council England, who do more than any other organisation in this country to champion culture, have been a constant ally and investor as has Waverley Borough Council who continue to encourage us to meet the ambitions of our community.

Come and see us.
