Give Pounds To Spend A Penny


Thanks for your support through the crowdfunding campaign in 2016, the renovation of the Dress Circle toilets is now complete!

In order to create space and provide more cubicles where they were needed most, we swapped the position of the Ladies and Gents toilets on the Dress Circle level and created a Parent Room with Baby Change, furnishing all with fixtures and fittings in keeping with the Edwardian style.

We raised £4320 for the project through Crowdfunding with further donations sent in directly to the theatre. We are also extremely grateful to H Monfared Builders Ltd and Plumbase who came on board with the project as Corporate Partners.

We are now at the start of a new chapter for The Kings Theatre, and the possibilities and opportunities are endless...  

The Big Project

To build a sustainable future for all who use the theatre, the Big Project is a programme of restoration and development of both the buildings and programme including:

Physical Improvements – modern toilets, better seating, new foyers, bigger bars and lift access

Restoration – renovating the building in keeping with its heritage

Education – opportunities for apprenticeships, schools, workshops, placements and a home for our Youth Theatre

Community – space for artists in residence, exhibition programmes and community event

Business – draw in visitors from across the region to improve and regenerate the local economy It's a big programme of work, and will take a number of years. But every long journey begins with a single step (and a trip to the loos) so, please us and Give Pounds to Spend a Penny! We can’t do it without you.
