WELCOME n Dear Readers I am pleased once again to be providing the introduction to our latest What’s On Guide. The Stag Community Arts Centre continues to provide a varied and exciting programme for the coming months. The Stag has very quickly established itself as the place to be for Pantomime, Comedy, Musical Theatre and Classical Events it is also pleased to be enabling the current trend for Folk Music to be more available. In addition to the scheduled event I would like to draw your attention to our youth provision, we hold the Stag Youth Theatre on Monday nights and during school holidays. Once a month we now hold ‘Soundwaves’ an Under 18 Live

Music Night – this has already proved very popular. For the younger age group we have ‘Story telling’ on a Tuesday afternoon in the café. I would also like to remind you that your name can become an integral part of the theatre now – that is if you would like to sponsor a seat. In these difficult economic times I am pleased to report that the Stag Community Arts Centre continues to be successful and consistently performing above target. My continued thanks for this goes to the Trustees, Staff, Volunteers, Promoters and local businesses who enable this to happen. Linda Larter MBE Chief Executive

• Suddenly have more time on your hands as your children start leading a more independent life? Volunteering at The Stag keeps you involved in the heart of Sevenoaks. • In between jobs or on a Gap year? Volunteering keeps you busy and is valuable experience on your CV. • Reaching retirement but not ready to stop yet? Wind down at your own speed by using your work life skills in a new way.
