Lytham Hall’s open air theatre programme has the support of three new Patrons from the business community for the 2018 summer season.
The Estuary eatery in Lytham’s Clifton Street, AKS School and the Rotary Club of Lytham are all giving their support to the expanded programme of plays at the Hall which opens with Chapterhouse Theatre Company’s production of Little Women on Sunday 17 June.
From a base of just five Patrons and three plays in 2010 the total of Patrons has risen to 24, with five plays being staged this summer.
Theatre organiser Julian Wilde feels that this is a reflection of the enthusiasm of many people across the Fylde to back top quality stage performances in an attractive outdoor setting.
“Our two “best-in-the-country” attendances for The Mikado and The Emperor’s New Clothes last August were a real boost to our morale and local businesses and community groups continue to be keen to support us. I am delighted to welcome our three new Patrons on board.
Jamie Hargreave, owner of The Estuary is more than happy to join the team of Patrons.
“The open air play season at Lytham Hall has been a continuing success story and we are delighted to lend our support. Lytham prides itself on all its independent shops, cafes and restaurants like ourselves and it is very pleasing to be working with so many of them in this way in support of Lytham Hall.”
Tickets which went on sale at the end of April have been selling well for all five plays and are available both on line and at six local outlets in Lytham St. Annes.
