The Leatherhead Theatre has been a pillar of the local community for many years. Sadly, the impact of COVID-19 has been absolutely devastating. As a charitable trust that receives no regular funding from local councils or Arts Council England, we need your support now more than ever.
The Leatherhead Theatre, formerly known as the Thorndike Theatre, named after Dame Sybil Thorndike, opened in September 1969, and has since provided a variety of arts for the local community. After closing in 1997 due to the withdrawal of public funding, the Leatherhead Theatre was reopened in 2001 by a charitable trust who are passionate about enabling and encouraging both personal and community transformation through the arts. we’re sure many of you will have fond memories of being here. Unfortunately, with COVID-19 restrictions, we have not been able to raise any hire fees which would usually go towards covering the annual costs of running and maintaining this Grade II listed venue.
