The Angles Theatre


In many ways it was quite sad to visit The Angles Theatre in Wisbech this week. Usually when I visit it’s as a theatre-goer, experiencing the magic and energy of live performances combined with the excitement and anticipation of the audience who know they’re in for a treat. Sadly, there was none of that buzz due to current circumstances, instead it was a quiet and positive hum focused on the future of this great venue. In December the Angles was awarded £128,000 of Government support as part of our package of funding for the arts during the pandemic. This means the theatre will able to reopen its doors for performances later this year when restrictions are lifted and provides a welcome shot in the arm for culture in the area. It was great to catch up with trustee Rob Williams to hear about the exciting plans for the future of the theatre. The fund does not cover capital works like the refurbishment of the gents’ toilets or auditorium seating so further improvements will rely on fundraising and grants. The “Pledge a Panto Ticket or Two” campaign, launched to combat the loss of pantomime ticket sales which are the theatre’s biggest income, has just closed - but I’m sure anyone who wishes to donate can still do so via the website www.anglestheatre.co.uk
