£150,000 raised for Park Theatre
9 December 2019
Park Theatre were delighted to welcome 200 guests for a Gala Fundraising Evening at Stoke Newington Town Hall on Thu 14 Nov.
£150,000 was raised to support Park Theatre, helping us deliver a range of projects including those engaging young people, those living with dementia and audiences with disabilities.
Gala guests included many of our friends from stage & screen: Angela Griffin, David Haig, Mark Gatiss, Ian Hallard, Steve Pemberton, Beverly Knight, Sean Mathias, Matthew Marsh, Henry Goodman, Michelle Collins, Simon Callow, Frances Barber, Phil Davis, Greta Scacchi, Hugo Spear, David Horovitch and Gary Wilmott.
Guests had an evening of Park Theatre warmth, welcome and entertainment - from host Simon Callow and cabaret performances from David Haig and Beverly Knight! Inspired by our Gala Dinner venue, the glorious 1930’s art deco jewel that is Stoke Newington Town Hall, everyone enjoyed an intimate, cabaret-style dining and dancing experience with dynamic fundraising opportunities.
Park Theatre cafe bar team ran a ‘pop up bar’ post-dinner to provide beers, spirits and late night cocktails to complement the dancing.
A huge thank you to everyone who attended and donated to Park Theatre, helping to keep us an open and welcoming venue for everyone in our community and beyond.
