Volunteers at The Playhouse have been thanked for their hard work over almost 30 years.
The venue’s dedicated team of volunteers, known as the Friends of the Playhouse, was formed in 1991 and members attend every show to welcome guests.
To mark Volunteers’ Week, the Playhouse has paid tribute to the role played by the group.
The Playhouse general manager Mark Thompson said: “The Friends do so much more than just fundraise for the venue.
“It sets the standard and ensure all who attend are greeted with a smile, that the venue can continue to grow for the community and make sure that whether a regular or attending for the first time, you leave the venue having been part of a wider experience – it is a family of friends which sees many join their group and find a new, social group to be a part of.”
The Friends has also raised money for new technical equipment over the years.
