than 70 volunteers who help to run Burnham-On-Sea's Princess Theatre
have this week been thanked for their support during a special
of helpers gathered at the theatre on Thursday night (December
20th) for an informal festive celebration.
Burridge-Clayton, Chairman of the Princess Management Committee,
told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "I would like to say a very big
thank you to all the volunteers at the Princess. The theatre and
arts centre is going from strength to strength and that couldnt
be achieved without the tremendous support we have had over the
past 18 months."
"We have now got over 70 volunteers and they have been a
great help in many areas at the Princess. The café/bar
area is now complete and is bringing in a steady income and since
the arts lounge was completed a few weeks ago the sales of local
art has been extremely good and beyond expectations."
have also had a big increase in the 'Friends of the Princess'
and this has been very encouraging for the ongoing success of
the theatre. We are still looking for additional volunteers and
friends, and would welcome further support."
interested can call in at the arts lounge and talk to our staff
and volunteers Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 3pm. or give us a ring
on 01278 784464. If you are an artist and interested in exhibiting
please contact Neil on 07814769092."

said: "I am sure 2013 will be a very exciting year for the
Princess with many improvements already completed and many more
to come, the scope for developing new ventures also increases.
We are now in a position to move forward with many of the ideas
in our business plan and provide a quality multi-use venue for
the residents of our area."
must also thank our staff, Andy and Craig, for their over-and-above
efforts in the management of the theatre, and also the management
committee who have all worked with a passion to see the Princess
has a great long term sustainable future ensuring that Burnham
and Highbridge will always have a quality arts centre and theatre."
I also take this opportunity to wish everybody involved with the
Princess and all our residents a very Merry Christmas and a happy
new year, and I hope as many people as possible call in to see
us and see some of the excellent work that is being carried out."
