What a remarkable time we have had here, at the Empire this year. Our audience numbers are up on last year, our staff increased with the appointment of Steve Burch as our new manager and we have also recruited a number of new volunteers. We have had new building renovations including new board room and green room, car park repairs and new steel fencing round the perimeter.
Our reputation is growing as a community theatre that is open to all and gives a good mix of Show productions, with a very varied programme to suit all tastes and our theatre is accessible to both professional artists and amateur groups.
Our staff and volunteers are also excelling with first class service coupled to a very cheerful and happy outlook.
On behalf of the Board of Directors and all at the Blackburn Empire we wish you a happy New Year and give our heartfelt thanks to all involved throughout the year.
Thank you for making this wonderful Theatre a happy place to be, both at “Show Time” and all other times.
I am personally very proud of you all and glad that you made me captive for the last 21 years.
Chairman of Directors
