Page 1

A Note from Cidermill’s Director:

As we prepare to launch our next season at Cidermill Theatre in Chipping Campden, we are thrilled to share some exciting news with you. We are proud to announce that we have officially become a registered charity!

Becoming a registered charity opens up new avenues for us to fulfill our long-term vision of making Cidermill Theatre a vibrant, community-focused hub. But to truly realise this vision, we need your help. We invite members of our wonderful community to step forward as volunteers and join us in this journey of growth and service.

As we embark on this new chapter, our commitment to providing quality entertainment remains unwavering. Our upcoming productions promise to captivate and inspire audiences of all ages. From comedy and live music to family events, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

But beyond the stage, we continue to envision Cidermill Theatre as a place where connections are forged, talents are nurtured, and memories are made. Whether you’re a seasoned theatre enthusiast or someone looking to lend a helping hand, there are countless ways to get involved and make a difference.

Thank you for being an integral part of our journey. We look forward to sharing many more unforgettable moments with you as we continue to grow and evolve.

With gratitude and excitement,

Cidermill Theatre Team


It costs almost a quarter of a million pounds to run the theatre every year. As a registered charity, we can now accept your generous donations.

When booking online, there is an option to show the Cidermill some love and donate a value of your choice. Alternatively, there will be a donations box out in the foyer during shows, where you may wish to pop in any of your unwanted change that is rattling around in the bottom of your pocket/bag.

Thank you for all of your support so far and we look forward to continuing to provide top class entertainment with your help!

From L to R: Laurence Iles – Technical Manager, Laura Ashfield – Director of Theatre Operations, Pip McComish – Marketing & Box Office Manager
