Firstly we hope you and yours are safe, well and mainly sane, during this unsettling time. It certainly has given us a moment to reflect on what we believe in, consider important, and where to focus our energies moving forward.
The lockdowns have affected so many businesses in our industry, us being one of them and like so many of our fellow venues, we were not eligible for government funding. We are determined to keep our lovely theatre afloat until we can open the doors again but we need your help to do so.
The Hen & Chickens Theatre has been, for over 20 years, home to incredible theatre, comedy and filmmaking talent. A place where new writers, directors, actors can stage an exciting play, scratch night or reading. A place where new comedians hone their craft or more established comedians get personal in our 54 seat space as they prepare to tour. A place where, over the past five years, independent filmmakers can showcase their projects at one of our three film festivals a year. It would be heart-breaking for this to be over.
You can donate below to help keep our lovely theatre alive. Thank you!
