CADOS are sad to announce the death of Lifetime Member Peter Ainsworth, who passed away on Christmas Eve.
Peter was a driving force in CADOS for many years and was the 'gaffer' responsible for the conversion of the Empire Cinema into the Little Theatre we know and love today.

His first wife, Cicely, was considered one of the Society's best actresses, while Peter himself did "a wonderful Tommy Cooper" although he kept mainly offstage. For many years, Peter was a Stage Manager and was a driving force in productions for decades. His presence still looms large, and it's thanks to his hard work that we have such a great facility today.

Our condolences and best wishes to his family. The funeral will be at St Mary's Church, Chorley on 4th January at 10am.
