Melton Theatre; part of Brooksby Melton College, is delighted to be celebrating its 40th birthday this year. As one of the town’s biggest attractions the Theatre has a rich history of providing the local and wider communities with a wide range of shows, events and entertainment all year round, and has welcomed many well-known and well-loved guests over the years.
Brooksby Melton College is committed to ensuring its facilities are entirely fit for purpose for the communities that it serves, and therefore plans to develop Melton Theatre to provide a much more modern and user friendly facility. The new facility will allow them to further build on the exciting programme of shows and events currently on offer and will provide a state-of-the-art training space for all Performing Arts students too.
The development itself would take around 6 months to complete and they will work hard to minimise the impact that this development will have on our communities.
Melton Theatre’s audience grows year on year, and in 2015 they welcomed over 26,000 people, which brings significant benefits to local businesses, with 18% of the audience travelling from outside of Leicestershire. The Theatre also supports 18 community groups to deliver a series of shows throughout the year.
We are starting a petition which will demonstrate the importance of allowing this development to take place, not only to Melton Theatre and future students, but to a large number of community groups, local businesses and Melton Mowbray itself.
We would very much welcome your support, please take a few moments to sign this petition.

We, the undersigned, call on the Melton Council to approve the Melton Theatre's planning application for funding and allow them to proceed with their planned developments.
