WELCOME

welcome As we approach our fiftieth year we are, perhaps inevitably, reflecting on how far we have come since a few good people had the foresight to save these buildings for the common good of the town. I hope our current efforts would meet with their approval and that we have stayed true to that original ambition – to be a cultural centre for all the people of the town. Any success we might have had has been possible because of the unwavering support of our two most local authorities, Waverley Borough Council and Farnham Town Council, and because of a committed staff team and a host of generous volunteers who give so freely of their time. I think we have become, or are becoming, an organisation that is particular to Farnham and contributes to the shape and character of the town. We are now known for flourishing craft festivals, a growing contemporary performance programme and a set of sometimes unlikely partnerships. It was one of the joys of the summer to see the first UCA students in Acting and Performance graduate, having become such an integral part of the Maltings. Equally delightful was the group of local women who performed their own piece Till Then at the New Victoria Theatre in Woking before New Adventures’ Cinderella. If you have an idea or want to contribute to any future adventure do let us know. Gavin Stride Director
