Theatre Building Fund Appeal Makes Shortlist

The People’s Theatre, an LTG member theatre, has been shortlisted in a national competition for their Redevelopment Scheme. The volunteer team at the People’s Theatre in Newcastle upon Tyne are appealing for votes to help them win £150,000 towards its redevelopment from building merchants Jewson.

The People’s Theatre is the only theatre shortlisted alongside 12 other schemes across the country.  The volunteer run theatre stands to benefit from £150,000 towards its redevelopment.

For the People’s Theatre, Tony Childs said: “We are proud to be the only theatre in the country to have made it on to the shortlist, competing against 1,800 other projects. We’ve had a lot of support so far from our audience and membership but we still need more votes and would love the support of our fellow LTG Theatres. Jewson’s prize money will help us to build a truly accessible community venue, with a new studio theatre”.
