Chichester Festival Theatre’s 2012 redevelopment, RENEW, was supported by Arts Council England and a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, which also funded Pass It On, a three-year community participation programme charting the history of CFT and creating an archive that celebrates the past 50 years.
To say Thanks to National Lottery players for the incredible things they’ve helped make happen by playing the Lottery, anyone who brings a National Lottery ticket to the Theatre from 3 – 8 December will receive a free copy of the beautifully illustrated book ‘Restored, Refreshed, Renewed’ which tells the story of the Festival Theatre’s rebirth.
You can also enter a competition to win one of three pairs of tickets for a free backstage tour of the Theatre on Sat 26 January, Sat 9 February or Sat 9 March at 10.30am: going behind the scenes of the iconic Grade II* listed building and following in the footsteps of the famous actors to have trodden its boards, from Laurence Olivier to Ian McKellen, Lenny Henry and Imelda Staunton.
To enter the competition, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your preferred tour date. The lucky winners will be notified by Tuesday 11 December; you will be required to bring a Lottery ticket with you when you join the tour.
