Congratulations to the Regal Theatre Minehead for their Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service

Regal Theatre

As the main sponsor of the Regal, Lentells are delighted that the theatre has just been awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. This is the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK, the charity equivalent of being awarded the MBE.

 

Lentells have been supporting the theatre for over a year, and it has been wonderful to get to know their wonderful team of volunteers and to gain an insight into the vital role the theatre plays in the life of the local area and beyond. The theatre is entirely run by volunteers - 200 at any one time -  who give some 70,000 hours a year; their work enables the Regal to present 150 events to audiences totalling some 25,000 a year, in a varied programme which including theatre, ballet, opera, concerts, films and live screenings.
