Grand Sale Raises Ten Grand
We're thrilled to announce that our special one-off costume sale on 7 April raised an impressive £10,000.
Our Grand Costume Sale brought over 400 people through the doors with queues starting outside the theatre from 8am as eager buyers waited to get their hands on a piece of theatrical history.
All money raised from the sale will go towards the theatre's REP First fundraising campaign, which aims to raise £1million towards staging new productions, offering more training opportunities and welcoming more participants and audiences than ever before.
Rachel Cranny; Head of Fundraising said:
“We're absolutely thrilled with the success of the sale and we're very grateful to everyone who came and supported The REP. There was a real appreciation of the quality of the costumes, all of which are made by our very talented Wardrobe department, and we're delighted that they will now have a further use."
