Audience Feedback

If you have seen one of our recent performances, you may have noticed a new addition to the Hurst Players experience. In an effort to engage more with our audiences and respond to their comments and suggestions, the Players have begun handing out audience feedback forms at our shows. These take the format of a series of 1-5 ratings on various aspects of the show (quality of performance, friendliness of staff, etc.) and an open comments section.

Audience feedback for the whole of 2017 has now been collected and processed - click here to view the summarised ratings, and here to see the latest audience comments. All in all, we think it paints a very positive picture of the quality of events at The Players Theatre in the year just gone. We believe the planned renovations will take care of the vast majority of areas where our audiences felt we had room for improvement - which, as you can see, are predominantly related to the building infrastructure itself. This highlights, more than ever, the importance in embarking on this project to revitalise our theatre - which is keeping us all very excited. Watch this space!

New Committee

The Hurst Players AGM 2017 took place on Wednesday 26th July, at The Players Theatre. As is customary, one of the points of action was to elect a new committee, to lead the company in the year ahead. Prior to the meeting, Hannah Banks and Ali Somers announced their wish not to stand for re-election. They are warmly thanked for their service to The Players. A new committee was duly elected from those nominated, and can be viewed here.

Players Theatre Renovation Plans

There are currently plans in motion to undertake certain restoration work on the theatre building, in order to allow us to keep producing high-calibre theatre for our patrons. For those interested in finding out more about this venture, a proposal of the intended works can be downloaded by clicking here. A provisional budget can also be found here.

We are currently in the process of raising the necessary funds to undertake this project. In addition to applying for financial grants, we are also seeking donations. Anyone wishing to help can do so by clicking the button below. We are extremely grateful to everyone who has already donated and helped us realise this dream.
