Kilworth House Hotel and Theatre have always been passionate about supporting the work of important causes.
Since opening the hotel, our guests’ and theatre audiences’ generosity has helped us to raise over £2 million for local charities. In celebration of the theatre’s 10th Anniversary in 2017, we launched our most ambitious fundraising initiative to date: ‘TAKE A PEW’, to raise vital funds for the life-saving work of Cancer Research UK.
Since our launch in 2017 through the naming of seats, the £1 hire fee for our famous red blankets on those balmy English evenings and various fund-raising initiatives with the theatre companies and crew we continue to raise substantial funds for CRUK.
We want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has supported us in becoming part of our beautiful theatre’s history for life whilst supporting the vital work of Cancer Research”.
Kilworth House Hotel and Theatre is a unique place to bring families, friends and colleagues together, creating life-time memories with loved ones.
By choosing to ‘Take A Pew’, you could dedicate a seat to commemorate a loved one or a special memory of your time with us. Cancer will affect 1 in 2 of us in our lifetime. Cancer Research UK urgently needs your support so that more people can beat cancer sooner, meaning more special memories together, for longer.
There are still a number of seats that have not been named so, as I am leaving the business in 2020, I have decided to name the remaining seats and donate the remaining money to CRUK personally.
I will leave with a happy knowledge that the HOUSE IS FULL – music to my producer’s ears!
