Our aim is to design, build and run a theatre and events space in Stone; providing professional facilities that are flexible, affordable and accessible to performers and audiences alike. This is a mission driven by local people for local people, whilst attracting more visitors to the town and its businesses.
As part of the Joule’s Crown Wharf development project, which along with their new Taphouse will also bring a heritage centre to Stone, they have agreed to build the outer-shell of our theatre and restore the existing buildings on the site for our backstage facilities.
The Crown Wharf Theatre is the name of the charitable trust we have subsequently set up to raise the funds needed to turn what will be an empty shell of a building into a functional, practical and habitable theatre! A theatre that will build upon the town’s existing arts, culture and community activity, and will look to foster a sense of a facility run by, and for, the community of Stone.
