Wrong Shoes Theatre Company By Wrong Shoes Theatre Company

The Shoebox has been given notice on its current premises and although a new studio has been secured, we need funding to make it fit for purpose, so we can continue to serve the community of Swindon.

Swindon Delivery stage

pledged of £4,990

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

Due to the contract ending on our current premises, the Shoebox is moving to a new space within an heritage building in January 2019, but in order to do this, we need funding to make the new space fit for purpose. We need to invest in a free standing trussing system that will be used to hang studio curtains and lighting/projection/sound equipment and flooring.

What we'll deliver:

  • Provide a new studio space in the heart of Swindon for the local community
  • Improvement of a heritage building of local and national importance

Why it's a great idea:

The Shoebox provides accessible education and training opportunities for all ages and community outreach initiatives. Our work encourages physical activity, arts engagement, learning, building communities and working together.

Steps to get it done:

  • Purchase trussing and flooring
  • Installation
  • Launch / Opening
