The Roses is a place of gathering, connection and community. Covid-19 has forced us to close our doors to protect our loyal audience and our staff; however, even in lockdown, we remain a vital creative hub for the local area.
Thanks to start up funding from Arts Council, Gloucestershire Funders and the BFI, we have launched our inaugural summer Feel Good Festival to stay connected with and help our audience to get creative during lockdown. This free online festival features workshops, masterclasses and special events from over 30 creative practitioners, and serves to support freelance artists in the local area and boost mental well-being for participants during this incredibly challenging time.
We have already raised £18,000 through statutory support, sponsorship and fundraising, but need to raise another £20,000 to deliver the full Feel Good Festival programme and to ensure we can continue our vital community programme once we reopen our theatre.
If you have enjoyed any of our Feel Good Festival programme or if you would like to “Give to Feel Good” and support your local arts centre, please consider giving a gift to support our vital well-being programme and community projects:
Your support will help deliver the full Feel Good Festival programme of planned workshops, masterclasses and events to encourage people across Tewkesbury and Gloucestershire to get involved, be creative and share their lockdown stories. By giving, you will support the reopening of the Roses Theatre and help us remain a creative hub for the whole community.
