Happy New Year from the Rhodes team and welcome to our 2018 Spring Season. 2017 has been a fantastic year for us with record sales for our autumn season of local and touring productions and we are delighted with our customer’s positive response to our diverse programme across theatre, cinema, live music and our museum. Congratulations to Chris Lydamore, our Museum Curator, and the museum staff and volunteers who through their hard work and dedication have, on behalf of Rhodes Arts Complex, achieved renewed Museum Accreditation Status. Our newly launched cinema, thescreen Stortford, has gone from strength to strength since its inception. Hosting general cinema, live screenings from the Royal Opera House, National Theatre Live and the Royal Shakespeare Company as well as hosting our fantastic family sing-a-long days, the cinema has seen successful season on season growth. We are grateful for the fantastic loyalty our customers have shown to this new initiative. At the time of writing Snow White is on track to produce box office record sales. I can announce that we are already planning Beauty and the Best for 2018, which will reveal the ‘Rhodes twist’ on this classic fairy-tale. Be prepared for a few surprises in our niche panto offering! As a loyalty bonus to our panto customers, we propose to give you the opportunity to buy tickets at this year’s prices until the end of January. Please see the back page of this brochure for more details. In closing, I would like to welcome our new Trust Chair, Deirdre Glasgow. The Trust alongside the team here at Rhodes Arts Complex look forward to continued growth and even more community involvement throughout 2018 and beyond. We look forward to welcoming you to Rhodes Arts Complex very soon! Paula Holland , Operations Director
