The current Leatherhead Theatre, formerly known as the Thorndike Theatre, opened in September 1969. Many well-known stars performed on the stage until the venue was closed in 1997 following the withdrawal of public funding. In 1999 the building was awarded Grade II listed status for buildings of special architectural or historic interest.
In 2001 the theatre opened again after a 15 year lease was granted to a local Christian charity and social enterprise. In the 2005 Leatherhead Tomorrow Heathcheck, the theatre was cited as one of the town's best features. It helps to sustain community life by contributing an estimated £625,000 economic added value each year, and enabling many thousands of people to enjoy the events that take place at this unique venue.
The trust must pay a cash deposit to the landlord as a condition of renewal. Additionally, legal and other costs have been incurred on the transaction. Under the terms of the lease the trust is also responsible for maintaining the building. Whilst the restoration levy raised just over £8,000 in the last financial year, nearly £18,000 was spent on maintenance. This year we have already had to renew the main water tank, and will soon need to have specialist work carried out to remedy deterioration of the external concrete.
Our target is £100,000 to cover the rent deposit, lease renewal costs, and contribute to the ongoing work of the theatre. We are delighted to announce that we have raised £50,000 so far. There is still a way to go to reach our target and we would like to invite you to support our appeal and play your part in helping to keep this valuable community asset open for another 10 years.
Donations of all amounts are most welcome and can either be handed in at the Box Office or sent in by post.
There's also an opportunity to book for a special meet and greet with Ian and Natalie, ask at the Box Office for more details
