TEACHING FROM GUISELEY THEATRE

A word from Chris, the Chairman

Guiseley Theatre was built over 150 years ago and was paid for by the people of Guiseley for
the people of Guiseley and it is still being used by the people of Guiseley of all ages. We have
groups for babies and toddlers, young children, teenagers, mums and dads, grannies and
grandads and even great grannies and great grandads.

The Theatre has done a lot for everyone but it is now time for us all to do something for the Theatre in return. It’s 153 years old, 

it’s tired and needs a bit of tender, loving care by replacing some of it’s warn-out parts so that it can still be a central point of the community - the community of which you are a part. 

As Chairman of the Theatre I am very definitely in the grandad or even the great grandad age range and I have been coming to Guiseley Theatre for over 60 years – please help us all to celebrate the past and protect the future of the Theatre!

                                              Thank you

                                                         Chris Ingram
