Welcome to Eastgate Theatre and Arts Centre Peebles
Friends continue to support the Eastgate in so many ways….
Your donations and support of the theatre are very much appreciated.
The Friends Committee, on your behalf, have given money back to the theatre for some of the following:
NEW HI-TEC SCREEN FOR THE AUDITORIUM – to enhance the showing of films and the live opera/plays which are very popular.We are sure you will notice the difference in sound quality!
NEW COFFEE MACHINE FOR THE CAFE – it makes excellent Americano/Latte/Cappuccino etc etc!
TABLES/CHAIRS/OFFICE EQUIPMENT DIGITAL EQUIPMENT
TECHNICAL/I.T. ITEMS FIRE SHUTTERS NEW FRIDGE
ITEMS FOR THE STUDIO STAGE REQUIREMENTS
In March 2017 we donated the following back to the Eastgate >>> £6,346
This assisted the theatre in obtaining a new Dolby sound system, especially useful for film showings (£2,458); for the design of this new website (£2,000); to fund a new projector (£550); to pay for the cost of the annual boiler maintenance (£1,218); also a small contribution towards the cost of the Christmas party (£120), which was enjoyed by Friends and Volunteers – a great social event to thank everyone for their support!
In 2016 we contributed £365 for café fridge, £965 for a part for the boiler, light outside foyer £50 and £120 for uplighters in back corridor.
In addition, we have handed over a cheque for £3,121 – this helped to replace lights; enable a digital projection service; provide new weatherproof poster boxes; fix some bolier repairs. All worthwhile requirements to keep the Eastgate running!
An urgent request last year was to replace the lightning conductor! We duly obliged (£2,200) so the theatre is safe! We also sent a cheque for £3,900 to help defray costs for a new digital mixer; to buy a badly needed external poster box; and to revamp some of the area by the outside seating to make it more attractive and useful. Hopefully you will notice all these changes soon!
Don’t be stuck for what to buy! Think what a special (and lasting gift) a Friends Membership could be for someone you know. These are available at the Box Office, so start to think who to give one too now!
