Lights Up! campaign wins major Arts Council award

As we celebrate our 40th anniversary, the Merlin has been awarded £63,830 from the Arts Council towards our technical upgrade.

Artistic director Claudia Pepler said: “We are very excited and can’t wait to get our shopping list out!”

Earlier this year we launched our Lights Up! fundraising campaign – a £20,000 appeal towards a new lighting and sound system in the theatre.

Claudia says “Thank you so much all those who have donated so far towards the match funding. We are still looking to raise £20,000 and there is still time to donate via the DONATE button on this website, or by cash or cheque payable to the Merlin Theatre.”
