Help is needed to upgrade the green room at the BOV.  We are hoping as many members as possible will get involved.  Read on to see how you could help.

Before the onset of social isolation, Guy Keith-Miller, Co-Chair, met with Amanda Adams, Head of Communications, to discuss how the Theatre Club can support fundraising. If you attended the AGM you will be aware that we have come to a new agreement with the BOV whereby we won’t be charged for hire of the Weston Studio for In Conversation events, but in return we will increase fundraising. We were delighted when Amanda asked for our first challenge to be to raise funds to renovate the green room.

Amanda explained that nearly every theatre has a green room and she describes it as ‘the heart of the theatre’. It is used by actors before and after performances and, when not required on stage, during shows. It’s open to all – actors, crew and staff – and is a space where people can eat and socialise, meet others and bond through laughter, conversation, gossip and grumbles. 

Maggie Davies will coordinate fundraising, but we want to involve as many Theatre Club members as possible. Can you help in any of the following ways?

  •          Donating whatever money you can 
  •          Contributing ideas for fundraising
  •          Joining a fundraising working group
  •          Through professional contacts, offering help with rebuilding, redecoration etc
  •          Through local businesses, donating new items such as lighting, flooring, fitted kitchen and white goods

If you can help, or have any ideas or comments please email Maggie at
