Transcript to Issue 2 of the What’s on Guide for 2017 The Trustees thought that it would be a good idea for each of us in turnto write a short introduction to the What’s on Guide, to let you know what we do, and bring you up to date with the latest news and progress. Our continued successful growth with more users and performers every year to date has been extremely rewarding and I have to say a very big thank you to all volunteers and our staff who have given support and enabled this to happen. A consistent growth in the number of events and people visiting the Theatre, has as a result seen our income increase by 50% in each year since we opened the doors. This has enabled us to employ more resources and grow further. As Chairman, apart from chairing the monthly meetings of Trustees, my personal responsibility is to manage the raising of funds to enable the Shelley Theatre to continue its structural development, and build on the programme of events. Although we continue to apply for larger grants for capital works through the likes of the Arts Council and The Heritage Lottery Fund, we have to-date been more successful with smaller grants and donations. No matter how small or large, in kind or financial is gratefully received and wisely used. Under the national “Spend a Penny scheme” administered by the Theatres Trust we now have the funds we need to complete the new downstairs ladies toilets. We are most grateful to Simon Ruddick who when attending a performance last year with his wife, brought this scheme to our attention. The toilets will be fully operational in April. With the Mulberry Room and improved equipment storage ready for use, work continues on our Café and the new box office, which we expect to be operational by Spring. The Trustees’ longer term target remains to make the maximum use of the historic Shelley Theatre and its rooms by their restoration, extending opening times for the use of the community, and in doing so to provide a full range of entertainment of the Performing Arts. You will see in this Guide that we have a wide range of excellent events booked for the rest of 2017 (even more than last year) and we hope that you will continue to come along and support us. Eric Lee TrusteeThe progression of the ladies toilets, with the ‘Spend a Penny’ grant from the Theatres Trust and Simon RuddickPop-Up OperaBellini's I Capuleti e i Montecchi (The Capulets & The Montagues) Saturday 11 March 2017 7.30pm £17.50 (£15)Experience the most tragic love story of all time.
