LONDON PUB THEATRES MAGAZINE MISSION STATEMENT
Our magazine exists to celebrate and unite pub theatres.
To raise the profile of these theatres and win new audiences.
To inform potential audiences about the theatres and the shows currently in production
To inform theatre makers about the opportunities at these theatres
To continue to be one of the major exponents of their work.
We are delighted to emphasise the differences too. Each pub theatre is unique, offering its own flavour to the mix. We endorse this.
WHY DO WE WANT TO DO THIS?
BECAUSE LONDON PUB THEATRES HAVE MUCH TO OFFER
They offer a voice to those who are not always heard
They are able to react immediately to current affairs
They are right at the heart of the community
Re-discovered plays (that are not being seen elsewhere) are staged thereby keeping alive our theatrical history.
Ticket prices are very reasonable with a broad spectrum of concessions
Furthermore, some theatres have occasional performance nights set up to create better access for people with specific needs (such as hearing or relaxed performances)
Benefits to Theatre makers:
The theatres offer established artists a platform for their work
They give opportunities to those entering the industry
They give opportunities to disabled performers
They give opportunities to companies bringing work from regional theatres and companies who are touring
It's a place to try out new work including new writing
A place to bring new productions of older plays
A place to show re-discovered plays (sometimes never seen before) and radical re-inventions of known work
