Official statement from Theatre Royal Onward.

TRO have decided to close the Just Giving platform for campaign donations for the time being. This is due to the monthly fee for keeping this open. Please be assured that all donations are safely in our account and are used for the on-going campaign as a whole. Theatre Royal Onward continue to keep a watching brief to protect the theatre and are speaking with the Theatres Trust and the Council, fundraising and trying to find someone or some way to buy the building for the purpose it was built, for the community as a whole.

Support the Campaign

Make no mistake, this is the best ‘true’ theatre in the area, beautiful Edwardian architecture that must be preserved, AND it would bring economic growth and community benefits to Hyde. The venue would be used for theatrical productions and film shows of course, but would also host weddings, conferences, dance shows, dinner dances, live music, commercial business launches, art exhibitions and a many other commercial and community events.

Get behind the campaign.
