Give to Feel Good

​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:

  •      £15 will pay for crafts materials for a painting workshop led by a freelance local artist
  •      £65 will pay for a professional choir leader to run the new Roses Youth Choir
  •      £150 will purchase three creative sessions for young people
  •      £500 will support 1 month of weekly activities for isolated and lonely older people
  •      £1,500 will pay for a practitioner to deliver a term of drama therapy-based sessions to those living with anxiety and depression in Gloucestershire
  •      Any amount you can spare would be gratefully received and will make a real difference

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.

Thank you,
The Roses Theatre
