Friends support theatre

Every time you visit Buxton Opera House to see a show, the welcome and experience you receive will have been enhanced by the donations made by a group of volunteers.

The Friends of Buxton Opera House have been supporting the theatre since 1987 and have donated tens of thousands of pounds for much needed items including box office computing equipment, sound equipment, orchestra chairs, cleaning equipment, hanging flower baskets and even a marquee for the external bar.

They also donated thousands of pounds to the Opera House Millennium Fund and to the work of the Pavilion Arts Centre.

The friends are inviting people to support the theatre by coming along to enjoy a warm and friendly experience at their regular coffee mornings from 10am to 12noon each Saturday in the dress circle bar.

Delicious home-baked cakes with tea or coffee will be available. Theatre tours are also available during some coffee mornings for just £2.50, taking place at 11am.

For more information about becoming a friend or the coffee mornings contact the theatre on 01298 72190.
