Staff, trustees and supporters of the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch are currently training for the Brentwood Half Marathon to raise money for its wide-reaching Learning and Participation projects.

Last year, the theatre rose over £3,000 and is setting a target of £5,000. Running the Brentwood Half-Marathon on Sunday 18 March are Douglas Rintoul (Artistic Director), Leanne McDonald (Scenic Artist), Tom Lowe (Relationships Officer) and Phil Cleaves (Community Champion). Participating in the fun run on the same day will be Mathew Russell (Executive Director), Lauren Bracewell (Executive Assistant) and Sara Thompson (Theatre Trustee).

The Queen’s Theatre offers a variety of programmes that enables everyone the chance to discover and nurture their performing arts talents. Last year, it created over 24,000 engagement opportunities across Havering, East London and Essex with people of all ages and backgrounds.

This includes producing high quality productions involving the local community, training young people in theatre skills both on stage and behind the scenes and assisting schools in delivering the curriculum in an innovative way.
