Who are the Monday Nighters?

We are a group of members who meet, would you believe, every Monday night at 8pm in the Art Theatre to undertake any jobs that we feel we can help to save the Theatre Money.

Our skills are many and enthusiasm plenty.

There are many areas that still need approaching and extra bodies or new teams to take on the challenge.


The next big challenge is the state of the Entrance Foyer. After recent rains there was a substantial amount of decoration ruined by water ingress to the left hand side of the entrance door – is there a team that will take on the challenge to redecorate and upgrade this whole area?

All the fire escape  of the theatre needs wire brushing and repainting to protect it from the winter.  Jobs for the daylight hours – Any volunteers this should only take a couple of days.

If you can help with any of these projects or can see an area that needs attention please come along to the Theatre any Monday night from 8p.m. you will be more than welcome as the maintenance of this unique building is our future.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.
