Friends of The Gwyn Hall

The Friends of the Gwyn are a group who feel passionate about the building and supporting the Theatre. Gwyn Hall Friends have put together a number of charity events to raise funds.

The ‘Gwyn Hall Friends’ are a group of supporters who raise money for local talent. Through their fundraising to date, they have gained charity status. This is to primarily help young up and coming musicians, artists and actors by giving them a platform to perform as well as give bursaries for music, tuition fees, equipment etc.

The friends will also give members priority bookings on certain events as well as arranging ‘friends’ concerts and events. Members will also have the opportunity to meet the artists performing in the ‘Gwyn’ and attend social events pre and post concert when arranged.

The Friends are gaining members all the time and their Presidents, Katherine Jenkins and Andrew Vicari fully support what they are accomplishing. (Katherine having gift aideda substantial amount of money to the friends last year).
