  • Miss. Xye Appleton
    "As Artistic Director Of The Young Theatre, One Of The Several Excellent And Dedicated Local Groups, I Wholeheartedly Support This Venture; A Purpose Built Theatre Would Be A Wonderful Learning Ground For The Group, Which Has Already Turned Out Many Excellent Technicians And Actors Working In The Industry Today. With Our Current Home Venue Under Threat Of Closure, This Project Could Potentially Save The Future Of Our Group. "

    "Grew Up In A Family Very Involved With Beaconsfield Theatre Group, Joined Young Theatre At An Early Age And Can Honestly Say It Was One Of The Most Significant Positive Influences On My Formative Years - A Purpose Built Theatre In Beaconsfield Would Be A Tremendous Help For The Youth In Beaconsfield, Bring Together The Community And Provide A Source Of Entertainment To The Area"
  • Mr. Steve Mcadam
    "The Garden Players Shakespeare Group Is Extremely Supportive Of A New Theatre In Beaconsfield. Founded In 2008, The Group's Four Sold Out Productions Have Raised In Excess Of £36,000 For Their Charities. Beaconsfield Is Expanding Rapidly. It Has A Number Of Talented Performing Groups And Needs A New Community Arts Centre Urgently."

  • Mrs. Sarah Golding
    "This Area Needs An Arts Centre To Support, Invest In And Encourage The Many Many People Having Fun In The Community With Theatre And The Arts. Education, Hobbies And Cultural Development For The Area Will Benefit Greatly From A Dedicated Space. Ill Gladly Fight For Funding For It!"

Important News - Feedback deadline - 28th February 5pm

South Bucks District Council is currently seeking community consultation on its high level plans that the council and Inland Homes have drawn up. These (pre pre planning permission) plans will define what should be provided as part of the Wilton Park redevelopment. 350 homes will have a huge impact on Beaconsfield - in terms of traffic, schools, health provision to name just a few items.

We have a chance to influence what community facilities are available in Beaconsfield. Of course we want a dedicated arts facility - but this is the perfect opportunity for Beaconsfield to define and realise its required community resources that the town deserve.

In particular, the proposed community hub is badly defined and most likely not provide what Beaconsfield needs - but rather be just another community hall in Beaconsfield.

To have your say - go to SBDC Wilton Park Development Brief to view SBDC and Inland Homes' proposals. There is a feed back form that the council is proposing that you use. The form can be accessed here: SBDC FeedBack Form. Deadline for feedback is Friday 28th February at 5pm. That is this coming Friday.

Our Aim

To build an independent community theatre and Arts Centre in Beaconsfield.

How

The redevelopment of Wilton Park in the next few years presents an unique opportunity for the theatre groups in Beaconsfield to realise a 100+ year dream of creating an intimate community theatrical space.

What we want

We are not asking the council or the developers to build us a theatre (although that would be nice) - we don't believe that will ever happen.

What we do want is for the council and developers to set aside a parcel of land within the site to allow the community to build their own Arts Centre, with theatre as the heart and soul of the Art Centre development.

How You Can Help

We firstly need to persuade the council to require the allocation of the land. Please sign this online petition and like us on Facebook.
