Friends Fundraising and Activities

Over the last year Friends have fundraised by holding a Treasure Hunt, Garden Ceilidh, Lottery, Christmas Pop-In and Film Night.

Read February 2023 newsletter here to find out what else is making news.

The Treasure Hunt was one for all of us. Whether “hunters” knew the town or not, everyone  working through the clues got to learn a little more about Peebles.

The Garden Ceilidh was a great success with many different artists playing music in the tranquil setting of a beautiful local garden.

The Friends lottery was again a great success with the draw being made at the Christmas Pop-In.

The Christmas Pop-In was just as it sounds a reason to call in at the Theatre, meet some old friends and make some new ones. All this with the added bonus of picking up some Christmas gifts.

The family comedy starring Billy Connolly and David Tennant “What We Did on Our Holiday” was the Friends first film night offering. The committee and many members of the audience dressed appropriately for a holiday and the night was enjoyed by all.

Friends continue to support the Eastgate in many ways. All donations are appreciated by the theatre. Between April 2021 and March 2022, funds raised by the Friends paid for:

4 HP Pro Book 450 G7 laptops – delivery, and setup.

3 Personal Computers, 1 Router and a Comms Cabinet. Installation and configuration costs consisting of several days work for a comms engineer.

Again ,a huge thank you to all.
