The perfect Christmas present...

... for a good friend or yourself! The early history of the AP Theatre is described in: 'Drama at the Palace - Victorian Heyday'. Based on research and much previously undocumented material, the book is both detailed and a wonderful eye-opener on a period of unlimited ambition. It's also great value at just £8.50 or £7.00 to members. It's available by post from the Friends' Shop.

Your name on a plaque...
The Theatre now needs your support in order to release the last tranche of the HLF grant. Every donation of any size will help, with those of £25 and above being recognised on a plaque in the Theatre Foyer.

For the Friends, we agreed at our October committee meeting that among other ways we would be supporting, we will contribute £900 towards one of the fixed seats in the Theatre.
