Enjoy mulled wine, Christmas shopping and support the Friends of the Alexandra Palace Theatre at North London's friendliest garden centre.

**And get a festive discount on all you buy.**

 FAPT Christmas Event poster

On THURSDAY DECEMBER 7th, from 6pm to 8pm, the Alexandra Palace Garden Centre is holding a special Christmas shopping event. You can pick up your Christmas tree and everything you need to decorate it. And there will be complimentary mulled wine, hot chocolate and tasty nibbles.

There will be a 15% discount on everything you buy for loyalty card holders (you can join on the night) - or 10% for non-card holders.

The Garden Centre is giving a generous donation of a percentage of the takings on the night to the Friends that will go towards the promotion and renovation of the Theatre.

Friends of the Theatre committee members will be there, and you can find out how the renovation is going, renew your membership, or just drop by for a chat.

If you haven't visited the Garden Centre before, it is on Alexandra Palace Way, London N22 7BB, just down the hill from the Palace Palm Court. It has its own car park and is conveniently on the W3 bus route - though you might not get your Christmas tree on the bus.

We look forward to seeing you on December 7th for a drink, a chat and some early Christmas shopping.

AGM 2017 Wednesday 31st May

The 2017 AGM of the Friends will once again take place in the splendid Londesborough Room (entrance from the Palm Court at the west end of AP).

Come along for registration and light refreshments at 7pm. The AGM will start at 7.30pm.

Our guest speaker will be Louise Stewart, Chief Executive of AP, who will tell us about her plans for the opening season in 2018.

Agenda and more details here soon.

New short videos from the Friends

The first two of the Friends' short videos about the history of the theatre are now online.  See the recent refurbishment work from inside the theatre and hear about what makes the auditorium special. You'll find them on the Friends YouTube channel.


And if you enjoy them, please share and forward them to your friends so the story of the theatre gets better known. (And maybe they'll become Friends of the Theatre or donate to help with the restoration work!)

Further videos are in production and we'll send members of the Friends update emails early next year as they become available - or just check in to the channel.
