LTG Central Region Conference & AGM: Rugby Little Theatre, 4 November 2023 (one day)

I am delighted to confirm that Rugby Theatre at 10, Henry Street, Rugby, Warwickshire, CV21 2QA, will host a one day LTG Central Region Conference and AGM this year on Saturday 4 November.

Debbie Hibberd and all the volunteers at Rugby Theatre are very much looking forward to welcoming as many of you as possible to their theatre.

Debbie confirms that the conference will focus on How we make money for our Theatres…other than by putting on our live shows!

The Conference Programme

10.00 – 11.00 Arrival – Tours of the theatre and coffee

11.00 – 1.00 Ideas Exchange: Paying the bills: extra ways to raise funds from your shows

13.00 – 14.00 Buffet lunch (£5.00 pay in advance)

14.00 – 15.15 Employing paid staff Benefits and pitfalls – part 1

15:15 – 16:  AGM & Open Forum with coffee (agenda HERE)

15.45 – 17:00 Employing paid staff Benefits and pitfalls – part 2

The booking form is HERE as a PDF.

The first session is based around Rugby Theatre On Air, conceived and realised during lockdown but which continues to offer cutting-edge radio drama developed by their in-house talent.

Debbie asks that If you employ people and are willing to talk about this to email her HERE as quickly as possible so she can add you to the programme. If you want to share any note or presentations, she will arrange for you to also share them with the attendees.

The production, which delegates can watch either on the Friday night (and stay overnight) or Saturday, is Sweeny Todd – The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Please book your own tickets.

Nearby hotels within a 15 minute walking distance include the Carlton Hotel, the Grosvenor Hotel and the Travelodge Rugby Centre (close to the Railway station) and a little further out is the Premier Inn Rugby North.
