Costume Store Drama

Some of you may know that we have, for the past couple years, had access to a room in an unused council property for our costume and props storage. Due to a change in personnel at A&B, we only discovered last week that the building was about to go on the market and we had 1 week to vacate! After much brain wracking among the committee and an appeal to club members for options, Minuteman Press on John Street in Helensburgh agreed to step in in the short term and give us some of their upstairs space. A huge thanks to Richard and Jane for saving us from the big hassle of, worst-case-scenario, having to divy the costumes up among committee members houses!
In the meantime we are still searching for a more suitable permanent home (ideally rent free!) so any ideas, do please get in touch.

Upcoming Events

Spring Concert – 19th & 20th May, in the URC Hall in Helensburgh. Tickets available from the start of May.
