CADOS is about to embark on a fund-raising campaign to improve the comfort of everyone who comes to watch shows at Chorley Little Theatre


The plan is to install comfier seats with more legroom, to make a visit to our shows even more enjoyable than it already is. Many people have asked for this, and now it’s become urgent as our current set of chairs are at the end of their lifespan and frequently broken, worn and falling apart.


We want to replace the current seats before they all collapse so have drawn up a plan that re-arranges things slightly but only loses us a couple of seats. But we can’t quite afford to do this and continue to stage the high-quality productions we’re known for so need a little help.


Our main source of income is from ticket and bar sales, so keep on supporting our events and you’ll be helping. Chorley Youth Theatre and Chorley Empire Community Cinema are also helping with the funding but as we’re all volunteers and very busy there’s only so many shows we can put on and still see our families or work colleagues.


We’ll soon be launching a crowdfunding campaign with incentives and rewards so look out for that. We’re also applying to funding bodies and also have collection tins around the building. Please feel free to pop a few coins in there when visiting.


We want to put on the best entertainment in Chorley – from our award-winning plays, to top touring comedians, our Youth Theatre shows, local bands, cinema screenings and the best of world theatre on our big screen. And we want you to watch them in the most comfortable way possible. If we raise enough money, we can also replace our decades-old crumbling heating system and do some other work around the building, so every little helps.


Keep an eye out for the crowdfunding campaign, but in the meantime please continue to enjoy our shows and events or simply donate below!
