Customers that are signed up to our email mailing list and for all who saw our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts were invited for our first ever community Open Afternoon. Community outreach is really important to us, so we decided to welcome customers into our orangery on Wednesday 15th August to check out our latest brochure, grab 10% off tickets, meet the team and enjoy a luxury cream tea!

The afternoon, much like the cream teas went down a treat as customers enjoyed mingling, and chatting away about all things theatre and everything in-between.

We are pleased to report that customers were thrilled with what we have on offer this autumn ranging from live music, with String Fever and The Dreamers (being firm favourites), to the selection of National Theatre Live and RSC Screenings, and the introduction of Last Night of the Proms, (formally at the Everyman Theatre), with many customers deciding to take the opportunity to use the 10% discount available and book up tickets early!

Customers were also getting into the festive spirit as they looked ahead to the Christmas highlights we have instore, including Johnny Coppin and our festive films. There were particularly excited discussions about how the Gloucester and District Christian Choir will be performing festive carols before the showing of Miracle on 34th Street on Tuesday 18th December | 7.45pm, which we are sure will add something really special to the evening during the festive period.

We are thrilled that so many customers were able to join us at the Open Afternoon, and since the event was such a success, we are considering doing more in the near future, especially around the launches of each brochure, with the added possibility of theatre tours!
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for their continued support of their local theatre, without which the show could not go on!

If you weren’t able to make it to the Open Afternoon, we hope we get the chance to welcome you soon to the Bacon Theatre. In the meantime, please keep an eye out for our email updates, and follow us on Facebook: TheBaconTheatre, Twitter: @bacontheatre and Instagram: @bacontheatre
