During these uncertain times we have been overwhelmed by the heartfelt messages of support we have received from the thousands of people who are missing Malvern Theatres. The important role we play in our community has never been clearer, and I am writing to ask for your help in ensuring we can continue to bring life-enhancing culture to the lives of our audiences.
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 Appeal we aim to raise vital funds to ensure that Malvern Theatres will be here in the future to welcome our audiences once again.
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.

As a registered charity, we are proud of our diverse programme, especially as only 1% of our turnover is publicly funded. With your help, we can continue our mission to celebrate the life-enhancing power of theatre on our stages 364 days a year.
On behalf of all our staff and volunteers, thank you for considering our request.
