“I have so many glorious memories of the time I spent at Nottingham Playhouse. In fact, I could probably write a small book! I was part of a fantastic company in the 1960s, under the directorship of the peerless John Neville. I was lucky enough to work on some fabulous productions and was even part of a company that toured West Africa in 1963 – the first professional theatre company to do so. It was a very happy time.
When I was asked to become Patron of the Nottingham Playhouse Seat Appeal, I was delighted to do my bit. I believe passionately in the importance of regional theatre. With local authority funding on the decrease, and corporate sponsorship of the arts waning, it is so important for us, as individuals, to play our part and support our local theatres.
It is in your hands to help ensure that Nottingham Playhouse can continue to offer inspirational education work, can keep producing world-class work, and can continue to give new actors and directors the kind of opportunities I enjoyed in my time here.”
Dame Judi Dench
