The Tower Theatre, home of the Hellfire HorrorFest, is in danger of being lost due to the Covid-19 lockdown. We at Hellfire Film Festival are desperately hoping you can help save this iconic community theatre.
Previously known as St. Mark’s Church, The Tower Theatre is a former Garrison Church on the Shorncliffe Garrison, a British Army barracks, in Folkestone, Kent. The Tower Theatre is a 280-seat theatre and is owned by, and the home of, the Folkestone-Hythe Operatic and Dramatic Society, an amateur theatre company who perform regular shows at the theatre.
Due to the global pandemic and the Government’s order to close all non-essential businesses this puts The Tower Theatre in a difficult position. The Tower Theatre receives no external funding so relies 100% on ticket sales, donations and membership subscriptions so naturally the Government-enforced closure has had a massive impact on funds.
We know it is a difficult time for everyone but if you can spare any amount of cash to help save The Tower Theatre please visit their GoFundMe fundraiser. Even the smallest of donations will go a long way towards the survival of this jewel of a venue in Folkestone.
