Margate Theatres (Margate Winter Gardens and Theatre Royal Margate) joins Theatre Trust national initiative to prevent the permanent closure of hundreds of UK theatres.
Margate Theatres face their greatest threat since the Blitz; Margate Theatres need you.
This is a call to arms – you can be a part of Saving Margate Theatres through a kind donation to our Crowdfunder campaign. By pledging whatever you can spare or selecting one of our rewards, you will be an Arts Champion and help us take a step towards survival.
Our historic theatres (like all theatres across the UK) are at serious risk of permanent closure. Up and down the land theatres, grand and small, are facing the largest threat to their existence in living memory, and, without urgent aid, the UK could become a cultural wasteland as venues close never to reopen. This is not hyperbole. The theatre sector, with the financial constraints of social distancing rules still firmly in place (there’s currently no Government guidance as to when that will end for theatres – on average, theatres need to sell around 75% of the available seats to be financially stable, social distancing lowers our potential capacity to just 25%) and we’re now facing an entire year without hosting events, we need your kind and loving support.
