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 lockdown has affected so many businesses in our industry, us being one of them. 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.
There are five ways ways you can help us survive:
1. You can buy vouchers which can be redeemed for tickets when we re-open. You can get the vouchers here (Below)
2. You can make a donation to the theatre HERE or via PayPal (payment address: firstname.lastname@example.org)
3. You can buy a ticket for our up coming Horror Film Festival HERE
4. You can share this information with others.
5. You can add your sketch, song, monologue, or short film to our Facebook page so we can remind everyone of all the talented people who have graced the stage and why we are worth saving.
Your help means everything to us all at the H&C. Thank you!
Please look after yourselves, and see you soon.
Felicity, James & Mark.
