61st Annual General Meeting

Crowd of people


61st Annual General Meeting


We hope everyone is keeping well!

In March we advised our members that with the closure of the Playhouse in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we decided to postpone our 2020 AGM until such a time that members can meet together again safely.  Instead, we are sharing both the Chairman and Secretary Reports with you today.  The financial report is also available to any current company member upon request.

As with many aspects of our lives, this is a challenging time for the Theatre community. Rest assured we are continuing to plan for future events.  Whilst we do not currently have an exact timescale, we remain in regular contact with the Theatre about when it will be able to re-open its doors.  As soon as we are safely able to do so, we will be putting these plans into action.

Until then, we wish you all good health and leave you with our Chairman's poignant closing line:
"Though the months ahead will no doubt will be a difficult time, now, more than ever, it is important to retain our passion for the theatre, so that we can eventually savour it once more."
