Glossop's only theatre to close for now

Partington Players Theatre - which is the only theatre in Glossop - has said it will be closing its doors until further notice.

The Henry Street theatre called the Chronicle to inform us of the news this afternoon (Thursday). 

Yesterday (Wednesday), Partington Players set up a GoFundMe page for anyone who wants to donate refunded ticket money to help keep the historic theatre alive.

It said in a statement: "As you all may be aware, many small businesses, especially hospitality are being affected due to the current coronavirus situation. Unfortunately, we still have a lot of running costs to keep our historic building running and maintained.

"We have had many customers wanting to donate their ticket money back to the theatre, this has been an overwhelming and supportive response and we would like to thank you.

"We have set up a GoFundMe page for anyone that would like to donate their refunded ticket money to help the theatre stay afloat.

"These are uncertain times, and we rely on our income to keep the theatre alive, however having to cancel upcoming events and lettings has really hit us hard.

"Thank you to all those who suggested this to us, we feel very loved and supported!"
