PARK THEATRE BLOG

by Dorcas Morgan

Friday, 8 November, 2013

Hello. We’ve all agreed it’s time we brought back the Park Theatre blog so here it is. I’ve been reading back through the archive and it’s been great to follow the journey of Park Theatre from the early days of building speak about ‘structural steel’, ‘disproportionate collapse’ and’ the benefits of gas combi boilers’, right through to the excitement of announcing the opening season. Since then, it’s been a bit quiet on the blog front, but here we are, back in action, to bring you the backstage banter and front of house gossi…

SARAH'S CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE

by Park Theatre

Friday, 14 December, 2012

I have a horror of stuff. I'm sure it's partly because I'm a naturally untidy person who hates clutter.  Not an easy combination - and the more stuff I have, the harder it gets.  I'm not keen on shops, conspicuous consumption makes me queasy, and I worry a bit about the planet.  That's why an article in the Guardian this week called "On the 12th day of Christmas ... your gift will just be junk" struck a chord. …

STILL SMILING

by Park Theatre

Friday, 26 October, 2012

It's exactly a week since the now-famous Park gala, and I can honestly say that we're all still smiling.  Melli and Jez have always known how to throw a mean party, but on this occasion they succeeded in masterminding an event that rivalled even their glorious wedding by the sea in sun-soaked Delaware seven years ago. There's been no time to recover; the core team hit the ground running pretty much as soon as they blinked their bleary eyes open the day after the event.  This last week has been business as frenzied usual (building work of course, continued…

by Park Theatre

Monday, 22 October, 2012

Superlatives escape me in attempting to describe with accuracy, just how glamorous the Park Theatre gala was on Friday night. Therefore, I shall name drop - use lots of links to press articles published today and finish off with an Oscar - style list of thank you’s. Im in PR - what can I say... Incredible host: Ian McKellen, tick. London’s best auctioneer: Jeffery Archer (as quoted in

Wow folks! We are almost entirely sold out for the Gala! I'm so thrilled. We've been working so hard on planning it and we are really getting excited now.
