We all have a chance to support our lovely Devonshire Park Theatre by voting for it in UK Theatre’s “Most Welcoming Theatre” award for 2016.

UK Theatre is the UK’s leading theatre and performing arts membership organisation and this award is given initially on a regional basis and then an overall UK winner is announced at the UK Theatre Awards ceremony in London’s Guildhall on Sunday 9 October.

Voting is monitored by the Electoral Reform Society and to ensure that smaller theatres, like ours, are not disadvantaged a formula is applied which divides the number of votes by seating capacity – so we do have a chance alongside the larger theatres!

To vote go to the website http://uktheatre.org/vote/  and then select the South East region on the map.  The rest is straightforward.  Please note that only one vote per email address is permitted.

The ballot closes at 12 noon on Monday 19 September and by casting your vote, you will be entered into a Prize Draw for £200 worth of theatre vouchers!

So please get voting!
