Our building redevelopment benefits everyone that engages with The People’s Theatre
That includes you…. our audiences, our volunteer members, Young People’s Theatre members, the diverse range of community groups, businesses, individuals and voluntary organisations that use the venue regularly as well as the wider community who enjoy having a cultural jewel in their midst.
The redevelopment reaffirms our status as a venue of professional standard, with a vibrant learning programme and strong links with the local communities of the North East. The People’s Theatre is a lively hub for the local community, entertaining a broad and diverse range of audiences every year. Yet, unlike many other cultural venues in the North East we are entirely self-funded. Our income comes from members’ contributions, box office income and hire of our wardrobe and venue spaces.
