Brookside Theatre is an integral part of the community and the central focus for Arts and Culture in Romford. The windows of this important community asset are in a terrible state of disrepair and URGENTLY need replacing if the theatre is able to reopen its doors when safe to do so, following COVID-19 and government forced closure. The original wooden frames are now dangerous, rotten and barely hold the glass. Not only would new windows greatly improve public safety but also the aesthetics, security and energy efficiency of these historic buildings. As an entirely self-funded project we have to look to our friends, patrons and supporters for their kind help.

What we'll deliver:

  • Replace the current original wooden frames which are now dangerous and rotten

Why it's a great idea:

Since 2010, a group of volunteers have been tirelessly restoring the historic War Memorial buildings that house the Brookside Theatre; Romford's first and only arts venue and the only truly community-focused theatre in Havering. The theatre is entirely voluntary run and self-funded, receiving no regular grants of financial assistance from the local authority, Arts Council or other like organisation. The Brookside Theatre is based within the Romford War Memorial with every penny raised going towards the continued restoration and upkeep of these historic buildings. Unlike other theatres, we receive no grants or external funding of any kind and rely solely on the kindness, generosity and support of our patrons. Anything you can donate will not only help us to keep the War Memorial open and ensure that the names of those it was originally built to commemorate will not forgotten but continue to provide first class entertainment to the community.

Steps to get it done:

  • Run crowdfunding campaign to raise the much needed funds
  • Replace the current original wooden frames which are now dangerous and rotten
  • Reopen its doors when safe to do so, following COVID-19 and government forced closure
