Help raise funds for The Lamproom and have a chance of winning £1000…. Did you know that The Lamproom Theatre runs a ‘100 Club’, which raises funds for the running of the theatre, and gives you a chance to win either £100 or £1000? Since The Lamproom Theatre opened in 1999, finance has been raised from many sources, mainly through tickets sold to thousands of people who have attended productions. Whilst the day to day running of The Lamproom is almost covered by income generated, there is no money left for improvements to the building and the development of the artistic programme. ‘How do I help’ - we hear you asking?
