Thanks to our Supporters
We wish to thank all the members of the public who continue to support us, and those wonderful event organisers who have choosen to use St. Mary for their shows and meetings. A special mention must go to The Invitation Theatre Company (TITCo) who had put on major shows for a number of years to sell out audiences, not least the recent "The Armed Man", 'Sister Act' and the classic 'War of the Worlds'.
TITCo have continued to use St Mary's for singing rehearsals and have posted a YouTube video. The aim is to take St Mary's from a closed building to a much visited asset to the town instead of merely an interesting background view.
