  • Mr. Garth Minikin
    "Existing Facilities For Local Theatre Productions Are Far From Ideal, So The Possibility Of Developing A Purpose-built Venue Could Further Stimulate Participation In And Enjoyment Of Amateur Performance In Beaconsfield. "
  • Mrs. Frances Alexander
    "As You Will Probably Know Beaconsfield Operatic Society Used The Wilton Park Theatre Before All The Security Issues Came In."
  • Miss. Cerus Jarvis
    "I May Like Out Of The Area But My Little Girls Daddy And Her Aunt And God Parents And Many Friends Have Been A Part Of This Group From Childhood And I Want Her To Have The Same Fun And Friends That They Got From This Group."
  • 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."
  • Ms. Sue Davie
    "This Would Be Such An Asset To The Local Community. Theatre Is Integral To The Social Life Of This Small Community. Beaconsfield Is Unique In The Number Of Theatre Societies It Supports And This Project Endorses This."
  • Mr. Jonathan Marks
    "An Area Designated For The Community To Build A Theatre/arts Centre Should Be A Requirement For All Local Councils. Land Is The Expensive Commodity Here And Councils Sit On Vast Reserves Of It. After All You Probably Only Need Something Like 5000 - 6000 Sq Ft For A Small Theatre And Arts Centre With Studio Facilities."

  • Mrs. Liz Dyke
    "Community Theatres Are A Great Way For Young People To Develop Their Skills - Socially And Culturally. They Help To Raise Self Esteem And Can Provide A Diverse Friendship Network. They Are Great Fun And Empowering And Have The Potential To Bring A Community Together."

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.
