Having achieved funding to develop design plans which aim to increase the footprint of the theatre and improve its facilities, the Eastgate is now preparing to apply to the Big Lottery Fund and other potential funders to bring investment of over £1.5 million into Peebles. In order to attract these substantial funds the theatre is now launching a major campaign to raise £50,000 towards the overall costs of the ambitious development proposal.

Board member Estella Abraham said

“£50,000 is a challenging fundraising target, particularly when there are many calls on the generosity of individuals and companies, but if we can achieve it we could bring £1.5 million into the town, make the theatre accessible to many more people, and secure its future as a key community asset for many years to come.”

There are many ways you can contribute to the redevelopment of the theatre, one of them is to donate through this Just Giving page…
