Walking is my passion and the theatre is close to my heart.
I’ve been coming to Theatre Royal for 25 years as I love live performance, it’s exciting. 

I’m a carer and bring many of my clients in to see shows
here from 20 to up to 96 years old.  There is a wide range of performances for all my clients, and a warm atmosphere, it doesn’t matter if one of them laughs in the wrong places, no one makes a fuss.  So I am really interested in the theatre’s Associate Artists Programme, their outreach work where they partner several charities and run workshops for the users of those charities, like Women’s Refuge, The Drop In Centre, The Befriending Hub, and give a voice to so many people who are marginalised. Undertaking that sort of work has a hugely positive and empowering impact on the participants.  It’s brilliant.

No one realizes how much money needs to be raised for the
theatre and that’s shocking to me too.  We hear all about lots of other
charities, but walking for the arts is a different challenge.
