Big plans for Ropery Hall
New plans were passed last year that will allow us to build a new bar and foyer area and extend the seating area in the hall to 200 along with proper back stage facilities for the artists and front of house up to date lighting and sound system. We will also develop a small black box theatre space for intimate performances.
To do all this will cost £1.6 million and we are currently looking at how we raise the largest part of the money from funding pots but we need to show a demand for the development through private donations which is where you come in.
There are many ways that you can support the fundraising effort. We are holding a grand raffle which will run from mid April through to August 10 when it will be drawn on the Food Festival Day. Prizes already secured include a LG 47’’ led TV generously donated by Lindsey Relay. I hope that you will help us by buying tickets.
Donations of £200 will guarantee your name is displayed on a steel wall piece incorporated into the stairs of the new build acknowledging your support.
Donations of £500 will buy a chair in the new auditorium offering you first refusal on free tickets to 25 shows during the first three years of opening.
Donation boxes will be placed in the Coffee Shop, Craft Gallery and Ropery Hall bar and we welcome your small change – it all adds up!
In the event that we do not raise sufficient funds to carry out the full scheme we will contact donors to let them know of any compromise scheme. At that point they would be given the option of a repayment or with permission we would use the donation towards a reduced refurbishment scheme.
If you have any questions or would like to offer your support please get in touch.
