The Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch is delighted to have raised £1,800 from its Christmas Fayre fundraiser on Saturday 15 December. The event was supported by Barclays Hornchurch who generously match funded the money raised.
The funds will contribute towards supporting the Theatre’s Relaxed Performance (Wed 2 Jan at 5.30pm) and Dementia Friendly performance (Thu 3 Jan at 1.30pm) of Jack and the Beanstalk in the New Year. These specially adapted performances welcome people of all ages who will benefit from a relaxed, quieter and supportive environment including people with an Autism Spectrum Condition, sensory and communication disorders, a learning disability or Dementia.
The Theatre’s Christmas Fayre was packed full with stalls, carol singing from Havering Singers and Fairlytes Choir, cakes, treats and games for visitors to enjoy throughout the day, whilst two sold out performances of its pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk performed on the main stage and three performances of its immersive festive treat, ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas took place in the Theatre’s new Rehearsal Space.
Tom Lowe, Relationships Officer at the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch says, ‘I’d love to say a huge thank you to Barclays Hornchurch for their generous support, to our Theatre Club volunteers and staff for organising such a great day and to everyone who came along and contributed to our Theatre, whether it was buying Christmas cards or enjoying a delicious slice of Christmas cake. It really was a brilliant day of community Christmas fundraising!’
