The Sleaford Playhouse Theatre relies entirely on tickets sales, generous donations, local government grants and Sleaford Little Theatre's members and patrons. Without our audience members and willing volunteers, the Sleaford Playhouse wouldn't be able to function as well as it does.
All money raised from shows throughout the year are put straight back into the theatre and is used for set building/materials, costumes, props, advertising, general bills and much more that come from running a Georgian Theatre.
The Sleaford Playhouse is owned and managed by Sleaford Little Theatre. SLT is an Amateur Dramatic Society who not only produce all their productions at the Playhouse, but their Trustees also administer the running of the theatre. We only have one paid employee, the cleaner, everyone else is a volunteer.
So perhaps you are now thinking, 'How can I help the Playhouse?' Well, if you are interested and keen to do more to help preserve Sleaford's Georgian Gem, then there are a few options for you to explore. Actually, there are two ways.
The first is to become a member of Sleaford Little Theatre, whether an active member or not. Members pay an incredibly low annual sub to the society. Becoming a member doesn't mean that you have to tread the boards and be on stage. You can help behind the scenes on costumes, make-up, props, set building/painting, lighting, sound and front of house to name a few. There is the added benefit of meeting new people in an enjoyable and friendly atmosphere not only during a production but on social events too.
The second means of supporting us is to become a Patron of Sleaford Little Theatre. As a patron, all we ask is a commitment to a regular annual donation, and you get to choose the amount you give to the charity. Additionally, we include these benefits:
- With your permission, your name will appear on all SLT programmes
- You are automatically added to our mailing list to receive SLT news
- You are given £1 off one ticket for each SLT Performance.
- You are invited to all SLT social events
- You have the right to attend all Annual General Meetings
You may further benefit the Charity by making your donation under Gift Aid - Under current Inland revenue regulations, we can then claim back 28% extra from the Tax Man.
