Hope you have all had an enjoyable summer and are looking forward to our next big production “Toad of Toad Hall”.

New Stage

The design for the new stage has been approved and LTL, the local company, have the order. Grants have been received from the following bodies:-
  • Hampshire County Council £ 10,548.00
  • Test Valley Borough Council £ 15,973.00
  • Chilbolton Parish Council £ 5,320.00
As an organization we may have to do some fundraising ourselves as the lighting and curtain gantry have yet to be agreed and costed. We have already had some personal donations, which will certainly be put to good use.

More news as and when we have some!
