MISSION STATEMENT

LONDON PUB THEATRES MAGAZINE MISSION STATEMENT

 

Our magazine exists to celebrate and unite pub theatres.

 

We aim:

 

To raise the profile of these theatres and win new audiences.

 

To inform theatre makers about the opportunities at these theatres

 

To inform potential audiences about the theatres and the shows currently in production

 

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?

 

LONDON PUB THEATRES HAVE MUCH TO OFFER

 

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

 

Benefits to theatre audiences:

 

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

Older plays (that might not be seen elsewhere) are staged thereby keeping theatrical history alive.

Some theatres have performance nights specifically set up for people with disabilities

Ticket prices are very reasonable with a broad spectrum of concessions
