Barn Theatre Studio Appeal
We launched an appeal in 2010 to raise funds for a major redevelopment of our studio theatre.
Why improve the Studio?
- Create a permanent home for the Youth Theatre
- Establish a smaller theatre for people to learn set design, lighting, sound and stage management
- Extend the Studio with new outer wall, gaining 1.5m of space
- Replace steps from Club Room with ramp for full wheelchair access
- Lower existing raised floor to increase continuous floorspace
- New lighting and sound rigs and control booth
- Better seating and storage
In years gone by the barn membership dug deep to purchase the freehold of the theatre and to refurbish the auditorium seating, and it is now our turn. We estimate we need £160,000.
We are already seeking sponsorship and grants to get us on our way to the total, but individuals can also help in several ways:
- Pledge an affordable monthly amount for a fixed period or make a one-off donation. Download Donation form (PDF 54KB)
- If your employer or company has a scheme to match your charitable donation with an equal amount, then please think seriously about giving your support to The Barn this year.
- Perhaps you are a member of local fund-raising organisations such as Rotary or Lions clubs. Please let us know if we can submit a funding application.
