Fundraising Concert 20th & 21st October
Join us at Littlehampton Baptist Church on Fitzalan Road this Friday and Saturday the 20th and 21st October for a fantastic
Autumnal fundraising concert
In the wake of the Harvester fire leading the Windmill Entertainment Centre to close for repairs, this concert comes on the show
week for Iolanthe as an opportunity for our fantastic cast and company to come together and present an evening of musical theatre and film songs. We hope you'll join us for the concert, raffle and
7:30pm start, doors at 7pm
Littlehampton Baptist Church
We are incredibly sad to say that we have, now, received notification from
Freedom Leisure and Arun District
Council that it will not be possible for The Windmill Entertainment Centre to be open in time for our
October production of Iolanthe, despite the sterling efforts between everyone working tirelessly to find a way to bring the venue available in time.
If you have already booked your tickets for Iolanthe this October, please be patient whilst we
organise our administrative steps to provide our options for you and we will contact you directly.
LPOS Vice Chair and Director for Iolanthe, Simon Jones, writes:
Sadly, owing to the ongoing situation at the Windmill Theatre, it is now confirmed that it will not be open in time to host our production of Iolanthe in
October - and despite collective sterling efforts between LPOS and Freedom Leisure, with LPOS Committee working closely with the fantastic team at The Windmill Entertainment Centre and their managers
- we have been unable to source an alternative venue for us to perform which meets all the requirements of space, tech, cast availability, dates and distance. It's worth remembering that performance
venues and spaces are fully booked up through the year to keep them financially viable, which is why it has been so difficult to find an alternative.
So, it is is with heavy heart and profound regret that I am informing you that Iolanthe will not be being put on this year as planned and will, instead,
be postponed to the October production slot next year which The Windmill have now secured for us
This is massively disappointing and saddening across the piece for all involved - especially for the incredible cast, all as they have worked so, so hard
in getting the show ready well in advance and creating an absolute masterpiece with all the energy and fun that G&S needs & there have been such good reports about how the rehearsals are
We hope that you will continue to support LPOS in the coming weeks and months as we look to produce more public production options and as we look to
re-launch Iolanthe next year as well as as our April production The Pajama Game.
LPOS Vice Chair and Director of Iolanthe.
Latest on The Windmill Closure
We, along with all local theatre and arts organisations were devastated by the events around the fire that tore through the Harvester and caused a family the loss of their home.
The West Sussex Fire Service were truly outstanding to each and every last individual in working tirelessly to stop the spread to The Windmill and saved our theatre. We are eternally grateful.
The Windmill continues to undergo safety assessments due to the party wall shared with the Harvester and work will continue to undergo assessments before works can begin to repair the foyer,
toilets, kiosk and studio and return the theatre to a safe, welcoming venue once again.
We will update all when we know more on any impact that might occur to our October production of Iolanthe.
Me and My Girl - A Triumph
