At the beginning of July the Eastgate Theatre announced that it was in a race to raise £70,000 by 30 August so that it could meet the European LEADER match funding stipulation and access an approved grant of £150,000.
As the finish line comes into view, thanks to the ingenious ideas, strenuous efforts and generosity of individuals, organisations and companies the fundraising effort is on track. If this momentum continues and the last £35,000 is achieved by the 30th the Eastgate auditorium will be transformed.

Peebles in Ohio doesn’t have a theatre. Maybe that is why Peebles, Scottish Borders has become a key destination for many of the finest musicians touring American roots music.
The Eastgate Theatre is the venue of choice attracting bands playing traditional music from all over the USA, from Los Angeles to Utah, Kansas to Virginia.
