LANE THEATRE, NEWQUAY

Newquay's Only Live Theatre

LATEST NEWS

Your theatre needs You!

No! not your country this time, just your local Lane Theatre!

As is the case with all performance venues, Lane Theatre is closed for the time being but a number of volunteer members are carrying out a programme of upgrades and improvements to ensure a better audience experience for future visitors.
This includes redecorating the theatre’s Green Room (lounge), The Cosy Nook Bar, the Lobby & Reception plus the two corridors to the auditorium.
Also planned is the whole of the central grass car parking area to be removed and replaced with a more robust surface.

With our income completely curtailed until at least November 2020 we are appealing for donors to subscribe £50 and have their names added to a commemorative notice that will be sited inside the Cosy Nook Bar for all incomers to see. Up to 100 numbered plots are available and some have already been reserved, either personally subscribed or donated in memory of a loved one; local businesses are also invited to put their names forward and become “friends” of Lane Theatre.

If you have enjoyed attending our plays and shows in the past and would like to contribute towards this essential improvement then please contact Andy Fox – email janda1994@outlook.com.    He will supply details of how to make your donation and also if you wish to select a particular plot that has not already been claimed.

After two years of fundraising from our raffles, we have raised £2000 towards car park improvement.   The aim is to remove that sinking feeling that can be experienced in wet conditions when parking on the grass in the centre of the road loop.

The cost to carry out the works required will be in excess of £12,000 hence the drive to raise £5k as part of our match funding.  Smaller grants have or are being applied for from other local funders.

There are 100 plots available at £50 and each ‘plot’ can contain up to 30 character spaces for your name, business name or name for a memorial.

These names will be collated on a plaque or board that will be on display at the theatre recording the event and donation.
