For something a little different The Spring Arts and Heritage Centre presents in association with Bench Theatre Fringe What Ivy Wanted written by Jacquie Penrose. There will be two performances on Thursday January 19th at 2:30 and 7:30.
The Bench AGM was held in September. It was agreed that ticket prices for the first night's performance would be 'Buy one, get one half price'. It is hoped to implement this in February. There were changes to the main committee and the Artistic Panel, and thanks were expressed for all the hard work by those leaving and those staying on. Details will follow.
A gentle reminder that subscriptions have now increased, the first time in several years, and therefore we ask members to adjust their standing orders.
Members are gently reminded that membership cards must be offered at The Spring box office when claiming free member ticket(s). These tickets are for the named member only and are not transferable to family and/or friends.
An inventory of props and costumes held in the props cupboard as well as by various members is now available to look at. Please go to the members section under Storage Guidelines to find the list to download.
