A Hole Lot of Help - Join us for our first Charity Golf Day

Posted on 11 April 2019

With the world gearing up for The Masters this week, we’re calling on keen local golfers to get in on the action and putt their teams forward for a charity event this summer in support of our 2020 Redevelopment Project.

Taking place on Wednesday 5 June, our first ever Golf Day will serve as the teeing ground for a public fundraising drive titled Play Your Part, aimed at ensuring the Theatre is at its best in time for Coventry’s Year as City of Culture in 2021.

Taking place over the next 18 months, the 2020 Redevelopment Project will be divided into three phases, beginning with the refurbishment of seating in our 1958 Main Stage auditorium, part of the original Grade II listed building. Phase two will see our ground floor café linked up with our first floor Burbidge Room to create a flexible dining and drinking space, which we hope will improve our financial sustainability in the long-term.

Finally, we’ll be taking over the nearby Jaguar pub, transforming it into a “creative talent hub” with space for emerging artists and community groups to meet, rehearse and develop their work. Above the rehearsal space will also be a flat to be hired out to actors and creatives, again us to diversify our revenue streams and work towards a sustainable future.

The public-facing campaign follows the receipt of a total of £3.7 million in grants from Coventry City Council, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP), with a further £600,000 needed to reach its £4.8 million target.

Kindly hosted by Coventry Golf Club, this summer event promises to be one you won’t fore-get, including a delicious breakfast on arrival and top tips from a PGA professional before you set off onto the beautiful course. As well as an 18-hole game, there’ll be opportunities to enjoy a range of mini golf games and a raffle throughout the day. The par-tee will even continue when you head back to the club, with a tasty barbecue ready for your return.
