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 here today.
All money raised from events throughout the year are put straight back into the theatre for set building/materials, costumes, props, advertising, bills and much more that come from running an original Georgian Theatre.
The Sleaford Playhouse is owned and managed by a charity, Sleaford Little Theatre CIO. 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. There is only one paid employee, the cleaner, everyone else is a volunteer.
Perhaps you are now thinking, 'How can I help the Playhouse?' Well, if you are interested and keen to help preserve Sleaford's Georgian Gem, then there are a few options for you to explore.
