BI staging

If you were lucky enough to have tickets to see The Ugly Duckling at the Barbour Institute, not only will you have seen a fantastic family show, but you will also have had the first glimpse at Tattenhall's new staging units.

Following extensive research, negotiation and fundraising, Tattenhall Rural Touring Arts have been able to purchase multi-functional modular staging units for use at the Barbour Institute.

The following people and organisations worked in partnership to raise a total of £9500 for these bespoke stage units.

  • Tattenhall and Distric Parish Council offered £1500
  • Tattenhall Amateur Dramatics Society contributed £1000 and purchased a made-to-measure valance for the front of the stage extension
  • Arts Council England granted £3500
  • Our Ward Councillor (Cheshire West and Chester), Cllr Mike Jones, donated £3500 in matched funding
  • The Barbour Institute Trustees have agreed to store and insure the kit.

    This amazing Partnership has resulted in —

  • A stage extension for Tattenhall Amateur Dramatics Society
  • A community asset made available, at no extra charge, to any community group using the BI, eg. the Guides, Tattenhall Singers, charity fundraisers
  • Tiered seating and many other staging options for Tattenhall Rural Touring Arts

    Following extensive training for a group of willing volunteers, you can be sure that things will be looking a little different at the next event you attend at the Barbour Intistute.
