The 39 Steps – didn’t they do Well!

As well as the resounding artistic success the production also made a very healthy profit. Well done to all involved!

Some of the money has already been put to good use to improve the main lighting in the hall with low energy and long lasting LED lighting.

In addition the long awaited and anticipated refurb of the Bar furniture with some stylish Ikea tables and chairs – and they even have cushions!!
