THANK YOU to all who attended this years AGM. We were quorate and discussed many aspects of the work of Friends. When the Minutes are available we will publish on this website and on the Friends noticeboard in the theatre.

Thanks to Caroline Adam for a very interesting talk on the future plans for the Eastgate, which were also published in the Peeblesshire News (28th July).


Friends can bring a friend for free! Why not try something different?

Thank you for visiting our stall at the Eastgate Theatre Open day. The children loved making fairy houses.

Our ‘Exploring the Railway Heritage of Peebles’ walk was a sell out! Special thanks to Stuart for leading this and Morag and Elsa for all the railway songs. We raised £120

The two fundraisers this quarter are The Bridge Christmas Market on November 25th at which we have a stall. Please come and support us!

The finale of our year of events is, of course, SANTA ! He has booked his sleigh for Saturday 16th December. There will be slots that can be booked between 10 and 3. and each child will be able to have a chat with the special visitor and receive a small gift. We are also having stalls on the day so saleable items (Especially with a Christmas twist!) would be very welcome. If you would like to help on the day do let us know.  Full details in the programme.


Don’t be stuck for what to buy. Think what a special (and lasting gift) a Christmas Pack Friends Membership is. These will be available from early December at the Box Office, so start to think who to give one too now!


Thank you for supporting in such good numbers. We had an excellent talk by Caroline Adam. A fundraising committee was formed after this meeting, so hopefully 2018 will see even more events to support the theatre.

 Look forward to seeing you at some of the forthcoming events
