Covid-19 Emergency Appeal – Protect Malvern Theatres
Covid-19 is having a devastating impact on Malvern Theatres. When we closed our doors our income disappeared overnight. We have worked hard over the years to build emergency reserves, but with social distancing measures set to continue and theatres likely being one of the last places to reopen, these savings will soon run dry.
We have taken every possible step to reduce our monthly overheads but the next few months will be critical for our survival. The loss of Malvern Theatres would be devastating, not just to our loyal audiences, but also to our local community and economy. To avoid this fate, we must act now and work quickly to ensure that we are ready to reopen when allowed.
Through our COVID-19 Emergency Appeal we aim to raise vital funds to ensure that Malvern Theatres will be here in the future to welcome our audiences once again.
We believe that world-class arts and entertainment should be available for everyone to enjoy. 300,000 people visit us to enjoy our programme of events every year, and we reach out to the wider community for whom Malvern Theatres is a constant presence in their lives; a meeting place and part of daily life.
Malvern Theatres also gives important opportunities to actors and performers. We help to foster new talent through our youth theatre, while community dance and creative therapy sessions give every generation and people of all abilities the opportunity to participate. As we emerge from this pandemic, we are poised to play a crucial role in helping to bring communities back together, healing the wounds of social isolation by embracing shared cultural experiences once more.
If you feel you can contribute to this appeal, we would be extremely grateful. Your help will be valued enormously and will make a huge difference in safeguarding the theatre that we all love.
