Capital Appeal Supporters 2010 - 2012

In 2010, we teamed up with Tonkin Zulaikha Greer to give the SBW Stables Theatre a well-earned renovation. The Stables foyer has had a much needed facelift and 2011 saw work start on the auditorium, including a re-fit to the theatre itself, making the seating much more comfortable and improving backstage spaces, making the lives of our hardworking stage managers and actors easier.

Tonkin Zulaikha Greer have considerable experience working on historically and culturally significant sites and when it came to renovating the stables, their clear vision and generosity as a major sponsor ensured the success of the project.

We will always be grateful to our Capital Donors who made it all possible:
