Friends of Lowther Pavilion (FOLP) are actively supporting Lowther Pavilion Theatre
Friends of Lowther Pavilion is just what you need. Set up in 2008 the organization is dedicated to assisting the Lowther Pavilion Theatre. Currently we are providing help and support as the council subsidy is phased out and the theatre becomes financially independent, raising money for improvements and refurbishments and helping to keep costs down with our volunteers. Going forward we will continue to help secure the future of the theatre as a permanent, successful and vibrant part of our community. We have just been granted charitable status and are now a fully fledged registered charity, with the Registered Charity Number 1151735.
Our achievements over the last few years have directly improved the quality of the theatre experience for customers, staff and performers. Our fundraising has provided money to purchase, amongst other things, a new sound system for the theatre, a new communications system for the technicians and refurbish the dressing rooms. In January 2014, using funds raised by FOLP, work started on refurbishing the bar and green room to provide new and better facilities for customers and staff. The area will also be used for smaller more intimate performance nights. Our front of house volunteers ensure theatre goers are given a warm and friendly welcome and we also have an annual programme of successful fundraising events. Full details are available on the What’s On page of the Lowther Pavilion website. Tickets can be purchased from the Lowther Pavilion Box Office.
