Coffee, Cake and Chat.
This has proved to be so popular that we now hold it on the first Saturday of every month - 10am till noon - in the Theatre Green Room. Enter the theatre through the Box Office door.

The next 'Coffee, Cake & Chat' morning will be on Saturday 7th April. We hope to see you there.

Coffee, Cake and Chat is a chance for us to meet and greet potential "new friends" and tell them about the theatre, The Friends of Shanklin Theatre and its volunteers.

£2 for a cake and drink with refills
£1 for drink alone
Chat - free
The more the merrier!

Come along to have a chat about the Theatre and volunteering whilst enjoying lovely homemade cakes. Bring a friend and, if you need to buy or collect any theatre tickets or vouchers, the Box Office is open.

Raffle prizes for AGM

Do you have any donations for the FOST AGM raffle prizes? The date of the AGM is Monday 16th April.

More details will be sent later. Please bring your donations at the CCC or leave in the Box Office for the attention of Heather Whitchurch.

Depending on the theatre availability, a free guided tour of the theatre will take you in a journey where you will discover many parts of the building not seen by the general public. The Theatre building has a very interesting history reflecting on the different uses it has had over the years. Tours last about 45mn to 1h. No need to book –just come to the Coffee Cake and Chat!
