Weʼre raising £10,000 to try and restore the theatre as it has been broken into over the weekend and we need a lot of repair works doing

On Sunday morning the theatre was burgled which is alway very distressing however the two men in question then spent 2and half hours trashing the theatre. They destroyed nearly everything from pulling out wires to plug sockets to covering everything in bleach and fire hydrant foam. They destroyed our computers, server, Equipment, props . The damage is huge. We wept to be honest. Twenty years trashed in just over 2 hours. We had huge help from 40 volunteers who cleaned the building so we can open. Please do keep supporting us so we can get things back up and running. We have created this page as people have been so kind as to offer donations. Another way to support us is to head over to our site and book a show! Means you get to enjoy somthing while also supporing us 🙂 thankyou https://www.groundlings.co.uk
