Christmas Message from BETT
As you may know the Burnley Empire Theatre recently escaped auction as Burnley Empire Ltd, a company formed by the friends group BETT, took ownership of the town centre historic gem.
After years and months of negotiation with the previous owner, we knew that the only way to move forward with progress was to take ownership.
The leap of faith was made possible thanks to the generosity from an anonymous donor, the continued support from Theatres Trust, National Trust, David Wilmore (at historic theatre consultancy TheatreSearch) and the commercial team at Napthens who assisted with the purchase. We are also very please to have the backing of Burnley Council, in-kind offers from local businesses and are delighted to announce the support of British Fashion designer Wayne Hemingway MBE.
Further thanks goes to the ones reading this and to everyone who has supported the campaign since we started back in 2015, with the hopes to restore the Empire and put it back into community use. To Everyone who has followed us online, read about us in the press, tuned into the radio, watched interviews, donated on Crowdfunder, attended fundraising events, attended open meetings, donated time, talent, venues, prizes and funds THANK YOU.
We have always been very keen to champion the invaluable support of our followers and well wishes. Without this support we would not have been in a position to consider taking ownership which is our biggest step yet.
As 2018 is nearly at an end we kindly ask all those who are as eager as ourselves, to bear with us and enjoy the festive period as we plan to announce upcoming events early next year and announce ways that you can help.
Thank you from everyone at Burnley Empire Theatre Trust & Burnley Empire Ltd.Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
