Open Letter From Leatherhead Theatre

24 February 2017

Open Letter from the Leatherhead Theatre

Dear Supporter

I am writing on the behalf of the Trustees of the Leatherhead Revival Trust, the charitable trust that runs the Leatherhead Theatre.

The Trustees are a group of local residents who are passionate about our unique Grade II Listed Theatre, and oversee a charitable trust to ensure the venue's future.

The Trustees and Theatre Management wish to thank all our Theatre Friends, volunteers and customers for supporting the Leatherhead Theatre since the Leatherhead Revival Trust took over the Theatre lease in 2005.

On the renewal of the lease on 24 December 2015 for 10 years our 'Play Your Part' fundraising appeal was launched. We would particularly like to thank all those individuals and groups who have contributed to this fundraising appeal.

To date the appeal has raised 74,600, but it is still far short of our target of 100,000. In order for us to continue all that we want to do for the Leatherhead Theatre, it is essential that we reach this target.

The Leatherhead Theatre is managed with very limited resources. The venue and charitable trust receive no funding from Mole Valley District Council, Arts England or any other funding bodies. The Theatre relies entirely on income from ticket sales, venue hire, our coffee shop, bar and donations.

As we begin 2017, we are reaching out to ask if you could help us in some way. You could become a Theatre Friend, work as a volunteer - we need expertise of all kinds, or by helping us financially.

For more information about our appeal or to make a donation, please contact us on 01372 365141 or via our website. We look forward to welcoming you to the Theatre in the near future.

Yours sincerely

Colin Langley

Director, The Leatherhead Theatre Company Ltd

Famous faces lend their support to our Appeal

Some of the country's best-loved actors have pledged their support to the Leatherhead Theatre's on-going Fund Raising Appeal.

Tom Conti (Shirley Valentine), Hannah Gordon (Upstairs, Downstairs), Patricia Hodge (Miranda) Hayley Mills (Wild at Heart) Sylvia Syms (The Queen) and Simon Williams (Holby City) have all tread the boards here when the Leatherhead Theatre was operating as the Thorndike.

The Leatherhead Theatre is approaching some milestones in its history.

2017 celebrates the 'Break through Ceremony' when actress Dame Sybil Thorndike made the first strike in the building works back in 1967. Looking ahead to 2019 the theatre will be celebrating its 50th birthday.

Therefore the raising funds is essential to the maintenance and running of the theatre. We do not receive a single penny from the Arts Council, trusts or the local council. Thanks to the generosity of the general public and the enthusiasm of our loyal volunteers, we support ourselves through ticket sales and fund-raising.

Saba Douglas-Hamilton on International Women's Day

To celebrate International Women's Day we thought we would share a couple of insights from Saba Douglas-Hamilton, her life living and bringing up a family in Samburu, Kenya:

You grew up on the savannahs of East Africa. Did that influence your decision to raise your kids there? What did you get out of it that you hope your kids do as well?

I think if you grow up being exposed to very different environments it has a profound effect on you. Most importantly it helps you to see beyond your immediate neighbourhood, and to have a curiosity about the world. Growing up among people of very different cultures also teaches you to be more fluent in different ways of life and thinking ? and that perhaps is the most important thing of all ? to have a perspective outside of the 'Western bubble'. My sister and I have been enchanted by the Samburu ecosystem in north Kenya ever since we were little girls, as our parents used to take us on camel safaris led by Samburu warriors ? walking through the bush for extended periods and having all sorts of adventures. We fell in love with the Samburu people and their way of life. [My husband] Frank and I wanted our kids to experience bush living properly, so taking the decision for me to run Elephant Watch Camp was relatively easy as Frank was already heavily involved in Samburu National Reserve through Save the Elephants.

Was it a difficult decision to take over this camp with a young family in tow?

Not really. I was going a bit mad being a 'mum in the suburbs', especially after the twins were born. My life pre-kids was very adventurous and mostly in wild places, as was my husband?s, so we were both pining for a bit of wilderness. Luckily, a lot of things aligned to make it possible to escape urban life and head up into the wild to Elephant Watch Camp.

What has been the most difficult part of the experience?

Trying to juggle the very high standards of Elephant Watch Camp ? a luxury tented safari lodge that specialises in all things wildlife and elephants ? to exceed the expectations of our guests whenever possible, along with the demands of our kids, the day to day challenges of running a camp in a remote location, the needs of my husband and those of a BBC television crew (while they were there), was tough! Sometimes I felt I was being pulled in five directions by wild horses!


Regrettably, the scheduled screenings of The Magic Flute, from the English National Opera, on 9 and 10 March, have been cancelled by the company due to technical issues at the London Coliseum which would have adversely affected the audience experience. We have attempted to contact all ticket holders to issue refunds, please get in contact if you still require one. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Leatherhead Theatre Leases Renewed

We are delighted to say that the Leatherhead Revival Trust has been granted a ten year extension to the theatre leases by the landlord. This means that the Leatherhead Theatre Company can continue to provide community focused inclusive entertainment and educational activities for another ten years. We are sure you will agree that this is good news and we would like to thank your for all your valuable help and support so far.


The current Leatherhead Theatre, formerly known as the Thorndike Theatre, opened in September 1969. Many well-known stars performed on the stage until the venue was closed in 1997 following the withdrawal of public funding. In 1999 the building was awarded Grade II listed status for buildings of special architectural or historic interest.

In 2001 the theatre opened again after a 15 year lease was granted to a local Christian charity and social enterprise. In the 2005 Leatherhead Tomorrow Heathcheck, the theatre was cited as one of the town's best features. It helps to sustain community life by contributing an estimated £625,000 economic added value each year, and enabling many thousands of people to enjoy the events that take place at this unique venue.

The appeal

The trust must pay a cash deposit to the landlord as a condition of renewal. Additionally, legal and other costs have been incurred on the transaction. Under the terms of the lease the trust is also responsible for maintaining the building. Whilst the restoration levy raised just over £8,000 in the last financial year, nearly £18,000 was spent on maintenance. This year we have already had to renew the main water tank, and will soon need to have specialist work carried out to remedy deterioration of the external concrete.

Appeal target

Our target is £100,000 to cover the rent deposit, lease renewal costs, and contribute to the ongoing work of the theatre. We are delighted to announce that we have raised £50,000 so far. There is still a way to go to reach our target and we would like to invite you to support our appeal and play your part in helping to keep this valuable community asset open for another 10 years.

Donations of all amounts are most welcome and can either be handed in at the Box Office or sent in by post.

The Architectural History of the Thorndike Theatre: A 1960s 'rep' in context

The Leatherhead Theatre - opened in 1969 as the Thorndike Theatre - was one of a significant number of new theatres built in Britain during the 1960s and 1970s. It is one of the best examples of the period. In an illustrated talk on Wednesday 11 November, Dr Alistair Fair, a historian at the University of Edinburgh who is currently writing a book about post-war British theatre architecture, will explain how and why the Thorndike was designed as it was. What ideas shaped its design and why is it an important building?
