Timely news during this week's celebration of Volunteers' Week 2020, with our very own local community theatre receiving a highly bestowed honour. This is a wonderful achievement and we send our congratulations to the Concordia Theatre!

Judy Peatfield, Theatre Publicity Officer for the Concordia Theatre: 

We can announce with great pride and honour that the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK, has been awarded to the Concordia Theatre Association (Concordia Theatre). 

This honour, which comes at very difficult times for theatres in general, is a fitting tribute to the hard work and commitment to all of our volunteers, who give their skills, talents and time freely over all areas of the complex. 

Their work over the past half a century has been invaluable in providing the thriving voluntary run community theatre and local community hub, which we have in the centre of Hinckley. Without our volunteers and patrons we simply would not be able to do what we do. 

On behalf of everyone who enjoys a visit to the theatre, we thank and congratulate each and everyone of our volunteers, past and present. 

Our doors  will re-open and the curtains will rise again, when we look forward to welcoming you all back to the experience of live theatre.
