For the second year running Gosforth Civic Theatre is taking part in The Big Give’s Christmas Challenge. The premise is simple if you make a donation between 1st – 8th December then every penny donated will be doubled, which, during a time where the arts and culture sector has been devastated by the effects of Covid-19, will make a huge impact. Even after a successful reopening The Gosforth Civic Theatre, like many other venues saw its income drastically reduced.

 Rob Huggins, CEO of Liberdade and Gosforth Civic Theatre adds, “All venues at the minute are facing real challenges, each having to make impossible decisions often  based on survival more than anything else, we have tried to find a balance between being there for our  beneficiaries, audience and local artists and also ensuring we are able to survive the pandemic, it is a  difficult path to tread.”

Gosforth Civic Theatre are looking to raise £7,500 in donations, which would see them getting a transformative £15,000 through match funding and will secure the future of the venue, as well as help them come through the latest challenge posed by COVID19.
