Go Fund Me - Fundraiser for the Avenue Theatre
- In 1989 the Avenue Theatre was formed by volunteers to provide much needed facilities for the people of Sittingbourne and has since been host to not only plays, music events and film showings but music, drama and community groups.
Like other theatres the last 6 months have been tough and the Avenue Theatre has taken significant financial loss due to suspended performances and cancellations of bookings. This is a very difficult time for us all within the arts community and small theatres are especially vulnerable.
Over the past few months we have worked hard to ensure the theatre is safer for our customers by installing protective screens, contactless toilets and taps, barrier systems and contactless payment systems. However this has been at significant cost and with reduced numbers able to be seated within the theatre we are suffering losses.
We are a volunteer run venue and all profits are put back into the theatre.
Any donation is greatly appreciated and can help keep the lights on at the Avenue Theatre and continue to provide an inclusive community space.
